Quote by Jonas Mekas
In a meadow full of flowers, you cannot walk through and breathe those smells and see all those colors and remain angry. We have to support the beauty, the poetry, of life.
This quote emphasizes the power of the natural world to evoke positive emotions within us. It suggests that being surrounded by the beauty of a meadow, with its vibrant colors and pleasant smells, can help dissipate anger and uplift our spirits. By encouraging us to appreciate and support the exquisite aspects of life, such as the poetry found in nature, the quote promotes a mindset of embracing beauty as a means of finding inner peace and happiness.
The less justified a man is in claiming excellence for his own self, the more ready he is to claim all excellence for his nation, his religion, his race or his holy cause... A man is likely to mind his own business when it is worth minding; when it is not, he takes his mind off his own meaningless affairs by minding other people's business.
