Henry Miller   Category: Vision

Life has no other discipline to impose if we would but realize it than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes toeverything we run away from everything we deny denigrate or despise serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty painful evilcan become a source of beauty joy and strength if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.
