"if i have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants".
however, i say this:
you are the giant.
stand on your own, see for yourself. grow yourself into that giant.
it means no one carries you on their shoulders to see; it means your view will be that much more rewarding, because it will be your own.
your own hard fought views, your own hard fought truths. your own hard fought life.
it came to me today, when i read isaac's words:
i am a goddamned giant.
no one will take away my view of this beautiful world; demanding i see it only from theirs, subjecting myself, submitting myself, selling out to make someone feel better about their twisted, sorry self.
life is not a competition;
there are many cracks and crevasses up the mountain;
we each have our own side to climb.
when we finish, we can only sit and share our journey with one another.
