Tree in chains (Quote)


'Life in this world is that of a tree, bound by roots, yet told it is free. to the mercy of wind, the weight of the sun, as branches bend, yet nothing is done. the fruit it bares when the water is plenty, fall to the ground and wait intently to be born to its life of chains. '

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,

I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
