846 days to go | 5/365

“You live your life, you try to live compassionately, and that’s the end of it. You do a little more than you should have to in order to be a good person, but you don’t go making big changes in the world, trying to fix things. It presumes too much to do so. There’s only this: if everyone acts quietly, compassionately, things will go a little better than they would have otherwise. But people will still suffer.”

— Jesse Ball, Samedi the Deafness
