(torn from the side of a paper cup)
Beware of turning into the enemy you most fear.
All it takes is to lash out violently at someone who
has done you grievous harm, proclaiming that only
your pain matters in this world.
More than against that person’s body, you will then, at that moment, be committing a crime against your own imagination.
—-Ariel Dorfman (novelist, playwright, essayist)
