that "the Best can be the enemy of the Good"
But that it is true that the Great
is, indeed, the enemy of the Big.
Kurt Vonnegut said (and i believe him)
that we were created to live smal
In small communities, with small needs
and small ambitions.
For years i have mentally fought
against those portions of the Tao Te Ching
that counsel constraint and restraint.
Think small, think not at all--
Do little, do nothing,
And all saints say
possess nothing to have everything.
the pearl of great price is actually gratis.
and love would be inexhaustible
if we only believed it was.
