False Consumption

“In our appetite for gossip,
we tend to gobble down everything before us,
only to find, too late,
that it is our ideals we have consumed,
and we have not been enlarged by the feasts
but only diminished.”

Pico Iyer

Who? Me?

“Camouflage is a game we all like to play,
but our secrets are as surely revealed by
what we want to seem to be as by
what we want to conceal.”

Russell Lynes
