Quotes Sath Liked

Ursula K. Le Guin
“There are souls, he thought, whose umbilicus has never been cut. They never got weaned from the universe. They do not understand death as an enemy; they look forward to rotting and turning into humus.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Dispossessed

Ursula K. Le Guin
“Excess is excrement, ... Excrement retained in the body is a poison.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Dispossessed

Ursula K. Le Guin
“This concern, feebly called 'love of nature', seemed to Shevek to be something much broader than love. There are souls, he thought, whose umbilicus has never been cut. They never got weaned from the universe. They do not understand death as an enemy; they look forward to rotting and turning into humus.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Dispossessed
