Quote of the Day

“Someone who is poking around in the fog of his or her own self is no longer capable of noticing that this isolation, this ‘solitary confinement of the ego’ is a mass sentence — that millions of people in all the highly industrialized countries are also pacing the prison cells of the self.”

– Ulrich Beck
