Notably: It’s Clarence Darrow’s birthday (1857). He died the day Austria was devoured by Hitler. He died every time a human being was killed in the name of the state. And he once survived his own death. An August 20, 1927 Associated Press dispatch: “Clarence S. Darrow, American lawyer, gave emphatic proof this morning that he was alive. Upon learning of rumors that he was dead, he insisted that the Associated Press correspondent take a walk about town with him so as to be able to send an authentic denial of the rumors.” He also spoke in opposition to the execution of Sacco and Vanzetti, who were killed by the state that August.

Mountains should be climbed with as little effort as possible and without desire. The reality of your own nature should determine the speed. If you become restless, speed up. If you become winded, slow down. You climb the mountain in an equilibrium between restlessness and exhaustion. Then, when you’re no longer thinking ahead, each footstep isn’t just a means to an end but a unique event in itself. This leaf has jagged edges. This rock looks loose. From this place the snow is less visible, even though closer. These are things you should notice anyway. To live only for some future goal is shallow. It’s the sides of the mountain which sustain life, not the top. Here’s where things grow.
–From Robert Persig’s Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance (1974).
