Clive Barker

The past, the future, and
The dreaming moment between—
Are all in one country,
Living one immortal day.

To know that is Wisdom.

To use it is the Art.”
Clive Barker, Everville

We kill when we close our eyes to poverty, suffering and shame.In the same way all disrespect for life, all hard-heartedness,all indifference, all contempt is nothing else than killing.”
Hermann Hesse
