quoth the madman


"Oddly enough, living only for one’s emotions, like a flag obedient to the breeze, demands a way of life that makes one balk at the natural course of events, for this implies being altogether subservient to nature. The life of emotions detests all constrains, whatever their origin, and thus, ironically enough, is apt eventually to fetter its own instinctive sense of freedom."
~Yukio Mishima, Spring Snow
