A kindred spirit

"I'm not a liberal, a conservative, an evolutionist, a monk, or indifferent to the world. My holy of holies is the human body, health, intelligence, talent, inspiration, love and the most absolute freedom -- freedom from violence and falsehood in whatever form they may be expressed." -- Anton Chekhov, Russian writer.

Words to live by.

The world is sadly lacking in intelligent values and we need to return to them if we are to survive our own foolish choices of the past.

Wow, so true!
On my Facebook profile where it asks about one's religion, I had written Freedom for mine. Society is bound up in own's made up, BS rules that Freedom is suffocating. Time to shock it to life!

Yeah. Us humans are very quick to pigeonhole each other. Maybe it's because we're lazy. I agree with old Anton though. A man not too lazy to think.
