Game. Set. Match.
Most of society’s arguments are kept alive by a failure to acknowledge nuance. We tend to generate false dichotomies, then try to argue one point using two entirely different sets of assumptions, like two tennis players trying to win a match by hitting beautifully executed shots from either end of separate tennis courts.
Timothy David Minchin, Australian comedian, actor, writer, musician, & songwriter.
The Complex Meadow of Recovery

Every flower has a cordial word which nature directs towards him. – August Rodin, sculptor and creator of “The Thinker” and “The Kiss.”
