the door of the prison is open

Friday, November 16, 2012


"The Stoics teach,” he said to me, "that we should not complain of life--the door of the prison is open. I have always understood that; I myself saw life that way, but laziness and cowardice held me back...."

~ Jorge Luis Borges, August 25, 1983, Collected Fictions, 1998

"the door of the prison is open" or "try death" is exactly what i always wanted to say to some people who keep on ranting and ranting about how bad life is. hello, angeli! kape tayo ulit. :-)

What a thought! I read someone say that she will never complain about anything after she had returned from visiting refugee camps in Afghanistan! We must be satisfied with what we get.
Wish you a happy day Angeli :)
