What’s in you



* * *


Be who

you are

and say

what you feel,


because those

who mind

don’t matter,


and those

who matter

don’t mind. 


~ Dr. Seuss

~ From Show your true colors (3:48)

    Mmm. Is that the one about “whom the lion eats”? You quote an interpretation, rather than a translation.

    No idea. Any time I’ve read this it’s been presented out of context.
    But the source doesn’t concern me much. I like the thought.

      Gospel of Thomas, saying 70. Sorry, nothing to do with a lion. But I like the lion one two: saying 7: Jesus said, “Blessed is the lion that the human being will devour so that the lion becomes human. And cursed is the human being that the lion devours; and the lion will become human.” The whole thing is worth reading. All the sayings are without context.
