only the children weep

"they've done it before and they'll do it again and when they do it - seems that only the children weep.  good night."

- harper lee, to kill a mockingbird


"the most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are.  you trade in your reality for a role. you trade in your sense for an act. you give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. there can't be any large-scale revolution until there's a personal revolution, on an individual level.  it's got to happen inside first."
