Quote by Rufus Sewell
My feelings about my mortality are less selfish than they used to be. I used to affect a cavalier attitude to death now I see it from my son's perspective.
This quote suggests a shift in the speaker's mindset regarding their mortality. Initially, they had a nonchalant and perhaps self-centered attitude towards death. However, the birth of their son has altered their perspective. They now consider their mortality from their child's viewpoint, indicating a greater sense of responsibility and selflessness. This change highlights the transformative power of parenthood, emphasizing the reshaping of priorities and a deeper understanding of the impact one's life and death can have on a loved one.
The powers in charge keep us in a perpetual state of fear keep us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor with the cry of grave national emergency. Always there has been some terrible evil to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it by furnishing the exorbitant sums demanded. Yet, in retrospect, these disasters seem never to have happened, seem never to have been quite real.
