Don't try to live the life of your soul as our young society does not know how to accommodate it. They only desire your young, beautiful and healthy body. And only if it's to their advantage, they may allow you to think and speak.
Inspired by the book 'Journey by Moonlight' - Antal Szerb

  1. Isn't it the young society who accept and promote living the life of our soul and the old who do not?

  2. It's not so much the old society or young society I'm referring to, or youth or age as you stated it, but rather giving society one age.. I'm referring to the here and now, 2011 where our society is still at the very beginning, young, naive and destructive.
