while on the banks …

In times of turmoil and uncertainty it can be helpful to remember what historians and philosophers have said.

Will Durant wrote. “Civilization is a stream with banks. The stream is sometimes filled with blood from people killing, stealing, shouting, and doing the things historians usually record, while on the banks, unnoticed, people build homes, make love, raise children, sing songs, write poetry, and even whittle statues.”

And Krishnamurti said “It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.”
