The lizard brain only wants to eat and be safe. Seth Godin, Linchpin

 

 

From it’s heights, the lizard on the wall,

And watch it move..slither and run.

“Nobody’s going to save you. No one’s going to cut you down, cut the thorns thick around you. No one’s going to storm the castle walls nor kiss awake your birth, climb down your hair, nor mount you onto the white steed. There is no one who will feed the yearning. Face it. You will have to do, do it yourself.”

― Gloria E. Anzaldúa
