Quote: "I am personally convinced that the basic search of every human being, from the cradle to the grave, is to find at least one other human being before whom he can stand completely naked, stripped of all pretense or defense, and trust that person not to hurt him, because that other person has stripped himself naked, too." -- from A Member's Eye View of Alcoholics Anonymous
Quote: I'll read about Buddha or somebody and say to myself "wouldn't it be a better world if everyone treated everyone exactly the same?" or another toughie: "Isn't compassion better than love?" (Arthur Clarke taught me that one), compassion is more egalitarian after all. :) -- MH Ecthelion

Quote: Friendship does not need to limit your freedom. Friendship is a choice, not a requirement. Contracts are made to be broken, and at every turn, you have the option of breaking that contract. Avoiding friendship does not make you more free. It merely means you've chosen, via your freedom of choice, to avoid friendship and forego the benefits you might receive if you performed whatever actions would establish and strengthen the friendship.

Quote: So, how does that fit into your theories, y'all? I've been lying to my friend for years, pretending to be something I'm not. ["What I am" wanted to punch him in the face for every pompous autocratic pronouncement.] I feared our lunches - I knew that my friend, who knew all my weak spots, would hit every one of them - and he did. It hurt.

Here is the Mirror of Galadriel. I have brought you here so that you may look in it, if you will.
