Love those Selfies . . .

"Truth is, we all project a false front to the world, peppering our social media pages with witty words and silly emoticons. Life narrowed down to 140 characters, staged selfies, and tirades over opinion posts. Life lived for the approval of the masses, all while tearing strangers down for the slightest misstep." Kristen Callihan, The Game Plan

Dominion over the cow and the horse . . . Does that include the dog?

"The very beginning of Genesis tells us that God created man in order to give him dominion over fish and fowl and all creatures. Of course, Genesis was written by a man, not a horse. There is no certainty that God actually did grant man dominion over other creatures. What seems more likely, in face, is that man invented God to sanctify the dominion that he had usurped for himself over the cow and the horse".  Milan Kundera, The Unbearable LIghtness of Being.

The evening mists rising while the morning mist burns through . . .

"I took her hand in mine, and we went out of the ruined place; and, as the morning mists had risen long ago when I first left the forge, so, the evening mists were rising now, and in all the broad expanse of tranquil light they showed to me, I saw no shadow of another parting from her." Charles Dickens, Great Expectations
