One is jealous of the other, two forces plowing against the grain, to refuse one, is to refuse the other, the madman is clinging to heaven as he forgets the earth, as the wise man moves through both without leaving the ground, the distinction is the difficulty, the contrasts are the same, with only one eye left open to conceive the view.

– Josh Fleming
