Institutions will curl up like burnt paper

Quote for the day:

When we get out of the glass bottles of our ego and when we escape like squirrels turning in the cages of our personality and get into the forests again, we shall shiver with cold and fright but things will happen to us so that we don’t know ourselves. Cool, unlying life will rush in, and passion will make our bodies taut with power. We shall stamp our feet with new power and old things will fall down, we shall laugh, and institutions will curl up like burnt paper.



  1. “Cool, unlying life will rush in…”
    Oh, to touch and know a tree again.. Lovely post xx

  2. Do not wish for it! Institutions still hold up civilization, lol!…

  3. Wow–what a quote! Hadn’t heard that one before!

  4. Rock and roll, let’s get going!
