Travel/Photography: Guinness Storehouse

Line(s) of the Day

DH Lawrence

When we get out of the glass bottles of our ego,
and when we escape like squirrels turning in the
cages of our personality
and get into the forests again,
we shall shiver with cold and fright
but things will happen to us
so that we don’t know ourselves.

Taken from the poem ‘Escape’ by D.H. Lawrence (1885 -1930)
