Quotes of Cleavage

“ The more a man cultivates the arts the less he fornicates. A more and more apparent cleavage occurs between the spirit and the brute. ”

- Charles Baudelaire

“ Humanity has passed through a long history of one-sidedness and of a social condition that has always contained the potential of destruction, despite its creative achievements in technology. The great project of our time must be to open the other eye: to see all-sidedly and wholly, to heal and transcend the cleavage between humanity and nature that came with early wisdom. ”

- Murray Bookchin
