The artist steals his colors from the palette of nature:
Daisy yellow, cumulus white, sea foam blue, and new leaf green.
Congratulating himself for mixing a gritty mahogany
(tinged with the red of rain-washed clay)
he sneers and deludes himself into man’s great pretension;
That he alone creates the wonders of the world.


The Nature of Selfishness

Those that complain about people being selfish often do not see when they themselves are selfish. If you are bitter that someone was not there for you, that does not give you the license to be self-involved. “Everyone is naturally selfish” does not only excuse others’ selfishness, it is really an excuse for your own.
