    “You'll have a good, secure life when being alive means more to you than security, love more than money, your freedom more than public or partisan opinion… when you let yourself be guided by the thoughts of great sages and no longer by the crimes of great warriors … when you pay the men and women who teach your children better than the politicians; when truths inspire you and empty formulas repel you; when you communicate with your fellow workers in foreign countries directly, and no longer through diplomats...”
    ― Wilhelm Reich, Listen, Little Man!

    “I know that what you call 'God' really exists, but not in the form you think; God is primal cosmic energy, the love in your body, your integrity, and your perception of the nature in you and outside of you.”
    ― Wilhelm Reich, Listen, Little Man!

    “You have no sense of your true duty, which is to be a man and preserve humanity. You imitate wise men so badly and bandits so well. Your movies and radio programs are full of murder.”
    ― Wilhelm Reich, Listen, Little Man!

    “Mistaking insolence for freedom has always been the hallmark of the slave.”
    ― Wilhelm Reich, Listen, Little Man!

    “The less he understands something, the more firmly he believes in it.”
    ― Wilhelm Reich, Listen, Little Man!

    “The pleasure of living and the pleasure of the orgasm are identical. Extreme orgasm anxiety forms the basis of the general fear of life.”

    Life is an unbroken, continuous observation of and participation in contrast.
    All the above is all and only my opinion - all subject to change and not meant to be true for anyone else regardless of how I phrase it.

Every It is bounded by others; It exists only through being bounded by others. But when Thou is spoken, there is no thing, Thou has no bounds. When Thou is spoken, the speaker has no thing, he has indeed nothing. But he takes his stand in relation.
