and yet there is this necessity….

Friends–

A quote you may enjoy:

We may have no wish to grow up, to grow old, to become the senior citizens, the elders of the tribe, and yet there is this law that bears us forward continuously in time. We may have no wish to die, and yet there is this necessity. Mary Caroline Richards in “The Vessel and the Fire” in Evolution of Consciousness: Studies in Polarity, ed Shirley Sugerman, 1976, p 215
