“Yes no yes no yes no?
Red blue?
Yes red, no blue?
No red, yes no?
In out, up down?
Do don't, can can't?
Choices sit on the shelf life
New shoes in a shoe shop.
If the in crowd are squeezing into a must-have shoe
And the one pair left are too tiny for you
Don't feel compelled into choosing them
If you're really a size 9, buy that size.
While everyone else
Hobbles round with sore feet
Your choices should feel comfortable
Or they aren't your choices at all.
Why limp when you can sprint?”
David Baird, Fiesta of Happiness: Be True to Yourself

“They found grace out in the desert,
these people who survived the killing.
Israel, out looking for a place to rest,
met God out looking for them!"
God told them, "I've never quit loving you and never will.
Expect love, love, and more love!
And so now I'll start over with you and build you up again,
dear virgin Israel.
You'll resume your singing,
grabbing tambourines and joining the dance.
You'll go back to your old work of planting vineyards
on the Samaritan hillsides,
And sit back and enjoy the fruit—
oh, how you'll enjoy those harvests!
The time's coming when watchmen will call out
from the hilltops of Ephraim:
'On your feet! Let's go to Zion,
go to meet our God!”
Anonymous, Holy Bible: King James Version

Steve Rasnic Tem
“I was never very good with either my hands or feet. It always seemed to me they'd just been stuck on as an afterthought during my making. Dreams didn't translate through sports, or music, dancing, carpentry, plumbing. I was the bookish kid, more at home in the pages of a fantasy than in the room in the town on the planet.”
Steve Rasnic Tem, The Man on the Ceiling

Kate McGahan
“We set our own limits on love. Some of us bind our hearts like Chinese women bind their feet. The binding is painful at first but eventually you get used to it and the pain goes away. The saddest part of all is that by binding yourself to the choices you make, you forget that there was ever another way to live.”
Kate McGahan

Olga Tokarczuk
“I have always regarded the feet as the most intimate and personal part of our bodies, and not the genitals, not the heart, or even the brain, organs of no great significance that are too highly valued. It is in the feet that all knowledge of Mankind lies hidden; the body sends them a weighty sense of who we really are and how we relate to the earth. It's in the touch of the earth, at its point of contact with the body that the whole mystery is located - the fact that we're built of elements of matter, while also being alien to it, separated from it. The feet - those are our plugs into the socket.”
Olga Tokarczuk, Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead

Vincent Okay Nwachukwu
“It takes a sterner stuff for a person in love to think straight. Most people fall head over heel in love leaving their minds behind. Love sweeps them off their feet and they stand lopsided, and so is their thinking. They accept the unacceptable in the guise that love is blind. When the reality of matrimony opens their eyes, they are pregnant with regrets.”
Vincent Okay Nwachukwu, Weighty 'n' Worthy African Proverbs - Volume 1

Steven Magee
“To all the people that approach me in the shops, please stay back at least 6 feet.”
Steven Magee

“I can get on my knees and pray all day, but until my attitude is on its knees nothing will be different once I’m back on my feet.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

“No matter if your feet are big or small, any size step forward is better than none at all.”
Christine E. Szymanski

A.D. Aliwat
“Feet in general are weird.”
A.D. Aliwat, In Limbo

Roland Topor
“By all accounts, my left foot has something very feminine about it. It's curvy, like Suzanne. The flesh is milky, and the skin is delicate just like the skin on Suzanne's temples, with the veins clearly marked in blue. The nails are pearly, the toes long and dainty like fingers. The instep has none of the unattractiveness so evident in other parts of my body. It has an elegance shared only with Suzanne.”
Roland Topor, Head-to-Toe Portrait of Suzanne
