"And sometimes the father prevailed and at other time the masters prevailed."
"The fathers world told him to hurry up; the masters world told him to cultivate unreasonable patience. The father's world told him that paths were straight and narrow. The masters world told him that paths were things cows occupied and he had to jump from them as often as possible. The fathers world told him that lifestyle and experience were the end; the masters world told him that wisdom and creativity were the end. In the fathers world a new car was a value; in the masters world an old book was a value."

"Ah yes, the good of play."
"Play well and the gods let you be."
