Curae leves loquuntur, ingentes stupent
- •The words of Seneca's Phaedra which mean something like:"Light sorrows speak but the deepest sorrow stupefies."
- •Or, in the words of Hamlet:"These indeed seem, for they are actions that a man might play, but I have that within which passes show."
- •Or, in the words of Andromache in Seneca's The Women of Troy:"The grief is light that has still the power to weep."
- •Or, in Paul's words to the Romans:"For we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered."
- •Black Lives MatterAnd I don't know what to say. Every word seems disingenuous and yet I want to speak. Every tear seems unearned and yet I want to cry.
- •I'm sorry.For my complicity. For my silence. For my inadequacy. For my country.
