remnant 76: “the price of the human condition”

leave a comment »

[S]ome moments teach one the price of the human condition: if one can live with one’s pain, then one respects the pain of others, and so, briefly, but transcendentally, we can release each other from pain.

Tell Me How Long the Train’s Been Gone, James Baldwin

To be sensual, I think, is to respect and rejoice in the force of life, of life itself, and to be present in all that one does, from the effort of loving to the breaking of bread.

The Fire Next Time, James Baldwin
