T.P. Graf Quotes
“The vastness and splendor of a created world
lies beyond our mind, mired as it is in
our senseless stupidity and destruction.
Blind we remain to the persistent hope—the gratitude of life
lived out instinctively, beautifully, in grace perfected—
of the panda
of the polar bear
of the emperor penguin.
Creatures each given to a hardship of existence for which we,
in our malnourished philosophic quest,
would render not worth the effort. Pass then,
creatures of the ice and snow
into the annals of extinction,
where later regret can bring no resurrection.
If what we do brings you to this fateful end, so be it.
We’ve saved you the trouble of struggling on.
Besides beauty, what do you have to offer us?
Where is your value-proposition that we can
exploit for our profit, anyway?”
