Things I wish I had said, Part 33

“Running was discovery, a return to the past, a proof that life did come full cycle and the child was father to the man. Because the person I found, the self I discovered, was the person I was in my youth. The person who was hypersensitive to pain, both physical and psychic, a nominal coward. The person who did not wish his neighbor ill, but did not wish him well either. That person was me and always had been.”

— the Prophet Sheehan
