Quote by Kerry Thornley
What we imagine is order is merely the prevailing form of chaos.
This quote suggests that what we often perceive as order in the world is simply a temporary and subjective arrangement that masks an underlying state of chaos. It challenges the notion that there is inherent stability or structure in the universe, highlighting how what appears orderly is actually just a manifestation of the countless elements of chaos that exist. It serves as a reminder that our understanding and perception of order might be limited or illusory, reminding us of the complexity and unpredictability of the world around us.
Your life and my life flow into each other as wave flows into wave, and unless there is peace and joy and freedom for you, there can be no real peace or joy or freedom for me. To see reality--not as we expect it to be but as it is--is to see that unless we live for each other and in and through each other, we do not really live very satisfactorily; that there can really be life only where there really is, in just this sense, love.
It was very clear to me in 1965, in Mississippi, that, as a lawyer, I could get people into schools, desegregate the schools, but if they were kicked off the plantations - and if they didn't have food, didn't have jobs, didn't have health care, didn't have the means to exercise those civil rights, we were not going to have success.
