Lose It

As soon as the generals and the politicos 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.  Practice resurrection.

-- Wendell Berry (5 August 1934-), American philosopher, author, farmer, and social activist, "Manifesto: The Mad Farmer Liberation Front" in Farming: A Hand Book (1970)
