“Perhaps it was all just another game that I can’t win, I thought. Heartbreak, a meaningful career, a dead-end ambition. I can’t win. I think it was at that moment that I was released.”
M.K. Williams, The Games You Cannot Win

“She was one of the freest people in the world. A middle-class white woman in America, she was the benefactor of a lifetime of advantage and opportunity. She was more free than a woman in Tehran or Bangladesh. She had the means to feed herself and her family, she could dress and speak as she pleased. She could work and travel without any reasonable fear of attack. She was so free, that she indebted and enslaved herself to clothes, cars, fashion, and Facebook. Youth may be wasted on the young, but freedom is squandered on the privileged.”
M.K. Williams, Enemies of Peace

“They had an idea. An idea, like a free radical, can spread like a cancer. They seemed out of step with what mainstream society wanted, and that made them a very dangerous couple.”
M.K. Williams, Enemies of Peace

“Even
After
All this time
The Sun never says to the Earth,

"You owe me."

Look
What happens
With a love like that,
It lights the whole sky.”
Hafiz

“Life is too short to spend another moment imprisoned by the will of another.”
M.K. Williams, Nailbiters

“Pay no attention to what the critics say. A statue has never been erected in honor of a critic.”
Jean Sibelius

“I am losing precious days. I am degenerating into a machine for making money. I am learning nothing in this trivial world of men. I must break away and get out into the mountains to learn the news”
John Muir
