How I feel about it all: calmcalm
Soundtrack: Phoebe Snow - Poetry Man
"People would become better if they stopped trying to become better off.
For when everybody tries to become better off, nobody is better off.
But when everybody tries to become better, everybody is better off.

"Everybody would be rich if nobody tried to become richer.
And nobody would be poor if everbody tried to be the poorest.
And everybody would be what he ought to be...
If everybody tried to be what he wants the other fellow to be."

--Peter Maurin, co-founder of the Catholic Worker Movement
