I must remind you that starving a child is violence. Suppressing a culture is violence. Neglecting school children is violence. Punishing a mother and her family is violence. Discrimination against a working man is violence. Ghetto housing is violence. Ignoring medical need is violence. Contempt for poverty is violence.

Because you love one human being, you see everyone else very differently than you saw them before- perhaps I only mean to say that you begin to see- and you are both stronger and more vulnerable, both free and bound. Free, paradoxically, because, now, you have a home- your lover’s arms, And bound: to that mystery, precisely, a bondage which liberates you into something of the glory and the suffering of the world.

— James Baldwin, No Name In The Street (via vishuddhaa)

I don’t want to be at the mercy of my emotions. I want to use them, to enjoy them, and to dominate them.
