The Christian fear of the pagan outlook has damaged the whole consciousness of man.More David Herbert Lawrence quotes [07/30/2011 12:07:43]
Men are free when they are in a living homeland, not when they are straying and breaking away. Men are free when they are obeying some deep, inward voice of religious belief. Obeying from within. Men are free when they belong to a living, organic, believing community, active in fulfilling some unfulfilled, perhaps unrealized purpose. Not when they are escaping to some wild west. The most unfree souls go west, and shout of freedom. Men are freest when they are most unconscious of freedom. The shout is a rattling of chains, always was.More David Herbert Lawrence quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
