The following quotes are simply a reflection of my intuition--occluded as it may well be.
"It's not meant to be a strife
It's not meant to be a struggle uphill"
-from "Undo" by Bjork from the album Vespertine
"The world has achieved brilliance without wisdom, power without conscience. Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants. We know more about war that we know about peace, more about killing that we know about living."
-General Omar Bradley (1893-1981)
