  • I wonder of what we might call, “The Web of Coincidence”.

    For instance, yesterday, a friend was specifically talking about the lack of freedom in her life. Then, this morning, I stumbled upon this quote:

    "The secret of happiness is freedom. The secret of freedom is courage"
    – Thucydides

    Parallel to our conversation regarding freedom, we discussed Assad’s violent regime in Syria, when my friend stumbled upon this quote:

    “…so here we have the human race divided into herds of cattle, each one with its chief who keeps it in order in order to devour it.”
    - Jean Jacques Rousseau
