What Can You Call Your Own

July 18, 2012

"And your way, is it really your way? . . . What, moreover, can you call your own? The house you live in, the food you swallow, the clothes you wear — you neither built the house nor raised the food nor made the clothes. . . The same goes for your ideas. You moved into them ready-made."

~ Henry Miller, from Stand Still Like the Hummingbird
