As soon as the generals and the politics
can predict the motions of your mind,
lose it. Leave it as a sign
to mark the false trail, the way
you didn’t go.
Be like the fox
who makes more tracks than necessary,
some in the wrong direction.
Wendell Berry, born on 5 August 1934, American poet, writer and farmer, Sun in Leo, Moon and Ascendant in Gemini.
