What if Buddha had said…
It is told that Buddha, going out to look on life, was greatly daunted by death. “They all eat one another!”, he cried, and called it evil. This process I examined, changed the verb, said, “They all feed one another,” and called it good. —Charlotte Perkins Gilman, author and lecturer, from her 1935 autobiography
What a great example of the value of perceptual agility!
