Lovely Words To Live By:

inspired by toni
Toni Morrison - Author Pictures, Images and Photos


"...to be given dominion over another is a hard thing; to wrest dominion over another is a wrong thing; to give dominion of yourself to another is a wicked thing."
-A Mercy [toni morrison]
I often wonder how much thought we as human beings put into our own well-being. It is no secret that we have been the biggest destructive force on the face of the earth thus far and that in destroying our surrounding environment...we are also destroying ourselves. So I guess we're really self-destructive creatures. But that's exactly the type of behavior I want to rid myself of. It is one thing for an outside force to constantly bring harm upon my person, but when I'm the one inflicting the harm upon myself--what does that say about me? So I've begun to work on a new resolve following Ms. Morrison's wisdom. I will no longer give dominion of myself to destruction...allowing myself to be defeated from within...I believe I am far too precious for that. We are meant to be free in every way...and to be any other thing would indeed be a very wicked thing...especially if we are enslaved by ourselves.
