“We speak of nature, of the natural world, as if that were something distinct from ourselves and the social world we appear to have made, seldom noticing that we are in nature and never out of it…” – John Haines, “Fables and Distances”
I do not strive to be better than you, or anyone. My goal is not to have better things. My goal is to wake up each day, look at the previous day, and be able to live with my actions and myself.
My goal is to be a better person today than I was yesterday.
