Intellectual Courage

1

You shall no longer take things at second or third hand,

nor look through the eyes of the dead, nor feed on the spectres in books,

You shall not look through my eyes either, nor take things from me,

You shall listen to all sides and filter them from your self…

Not I, not any one else can travel that road for you,

You must travel it for yourself.

Walt Whitman
