It isinvisible, solid, in short a joyous and paradoxical thing, asgood a material as any tobuild a life from.Peter Carey

Ego is a social institution with no physical reality. The ego is simply your symbol of yourself.

Thou should'st be carolling thy Maker's praise, Poor bird! now fetter'd, and here set to draw, With graceless toil of beak and added claw, The meagre food that scarce thy want allays!

Thee the wild woods await, in leaves attired, Where notes of liquid utterance should engage Thy bill, that now with pain scant forage earns.
