no surrender...

"To the extent that this world surrenders its richness and diversity, it surrenders its poetry. To the extent that it relinquishes its capacity  to surprise, it relinquishes its magic. To the extent that it loses its ability to tolerate ridiculous and even dangerous exceptions, it loses its grace. As its options (no matter how absurd or unlikely) diminish, so do its chances for the future."
Tom Robbins (Even Cowgirls Get the Blues)

Another beautiful quote from Tom Robbins. Thanks for sharing it. Is "Even Cowgirls Get the Blues" a must-read for homeschooling parents? He seems to have a lot of relevant things to say, and I remember Grace Llewellyn recommended it (for mature readers) in "The Teenage Liberation Handbook".
