Two ways of living

He said : “It is all useless, if the last landing place can only be the infernal city, and it is there that, in ever-narrowing circles, the current is drawing us.”

And Polo said : “The inferno of the living is not something that will be; if there is one, it is what is already here, the inferno where we live everyday, that we form by being together. There are two ways to escape suffering it. The first is easy for many : accept the inferno and become such a part of it that you can longer see it. The second is risky and demands constant vigilance and apprehension : seek and learn to recognie who and what, in the midst of the inferno, are not inferno, then make then endure, give them space. ”
