Quote (Poem) of the Day

Updated: Feb 11, 2021

“Two Bundles of Reeds,”

Only by supporting each other

can the two bundles stand straight —

if one is removed, the other must fall. Because this exists, so does that; because that exists, so does this.

For several brilliant centuries, Western civilization has encouraged the independence of the individual but now appears to be facing a turbulent twilight.

The waves of egoism eat away at the shores of contemporary society.

The tragedy of division wraps the world in a thick fog. Individuals are becoming mere scraps, mere fragments, competing reed bundles of lesser self threatened with mutual collapse.
