Care for the Soul

The Roses of Heliogabalus, detail, by Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, 1888.jpg


To those wronged by others or wounded by life, this reminder:

Whoever fights monsters should see to it that, in the process, they do not become a monster.


Of course, we're all injured to varying degrees but, if we care for ourselves, perhaps we can somehow transform our pain into gifts for others...

I and the public know what all school children learn, those to whom evil is done, do evil in return.

—W.H. Auden

People who hurt others are often those hurt themselves.. Try, through self-examination and care, to be the one who ends this vicious cycle in your life.
