– Emma Goldman
One would always want to think of oneself as being on the side of love, ready to recognize it and wish it well - but, when confronted with it in others, one so often resented it, questioned its true nature, secretly dismissed the particular instance as folly or promiscuity. Was it merely jealousy, or a reluctance to admit so noble and enviable a sentiment in anyone but oneself?

It spills itself in fearing to be spilt.

It is the green-eyed monster which doth mock
The meat it feeds on.

To talk about balance, it's easier to talk about what's out of balance. And I think anytime that you have any disease, and disease meaning lack of ease, lack of flow... dis-ease. So any time there's disease, you're out of balance, whether it's jealousy, anger, greed, anxiety, fear.
– Ricky Williams
