Bullshit Alert: If the Road to Hell is Paved with Good Intentions, to Where do Bad Intentions Lead Us, and What Kind of Intention Do Actually Get Us to Heaven?
The motive behind criticism often determines its validity. Those who care criticize where necessary. Those who envy criticize the moment they think that they have found a weak spot
– Criss Jami –
I believe that we must align our actions with our highest principles. No matter the outcome, we will not have failed if we act from our best intentions.

All of my words, if not well put nor well taken, are well meant.
– Woody Guthrie –
A poet is the strangest sort of soul
You in this life may e'er expect to meet
More broken even while more truly whole,
Innocently intending well, more sweet
Than any but a five year old should be
Unfit to meet a callused world's demand
Or to behave aught expediently
All grace in flight; an albatross on land
Do not the all too common error make
Do not fall into the too easy trap
Avoid the fatal egoic mistake
Imagining that poet be a sap
Powerful spirits classic and antique
Give voice when poets ope their mouths to speak
