Quote of the Day

"Once upon a time the mouth, the hands, and the feet said to each other, 'We do all this work gathering food and chewing it up, but the lazy fellow, the stomach, does nothing. It's high time he did some work too, let's go on strike!' Whereupon they went many days without working, but soon found themselves feeling weaker and weaker until at last each of them realized that the stomach was their stomach, and that they would have to go back to work to remain alive."

From The Book on the Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are, by Alan Watts.
