Quote by Charles Baudelaire
A frenzied passion for art is a canker that devours everything else.
This quote suggests that an obsessive and excessive devotion to art can be detrimental and destructive, consuming all other aspects of one's life. It suggests that when someone becomes overly consumed by their passion for art, other important aspects such as relationships, personal well-being, and responsibilities tend to be neglected or overlooked. The quote warns against letting the fervor for artistic pursuits take control and urges a balance for a more fulfilling and well-rounded life.
Faith is a great thing, and really religious people would like us to believe that faith and knowing are the same thing, but I don't believe that myself. Because there are too many different ideas on the subject. What we is this: When we die, one of two things happens. Either our souls and thoughts somehow survive the experience of dying or they don't. If they do, that opens up every possibility you could think of. If they don't, it's just blotto. The end.
The family is the basic cell of government: it is where we are trained to believe that we are human beings or that we are chattel, it is where we are trained to see the sex and race divisions and become callous to injustice even if it is done to ourselves, to accept as biological a full system of authoritarian government.
