It’s better to be a dog in a peaceful time than be a man in a chaotic period.
@epilys this quote is really bugging me for some reason. I'm reading "dog" as "having a master" or being in some kind of authoritarian situation. I just don't think I'd ever want to actively choose it and intuitively I reject it. Intellectually I totally follow what it's saying and see the logic. I saw the post earlier today and I can't remove it from my head.
@badtuple I get what you mean. I don't see myself as the "master" of "my" dog ("my" doesn't mean property, it's "my" as in "my parents"). It's just a dog I take care of and lives with me.
