SEVEN PILLARS OF WISDOM READING-A Round-Up for now
Well I am nearly done,but due to my forgetfulness and the library loan I forget to jot down my thoughts.
It is strange for me as a reader,the past month have been a bitch with the dry weather,and you probably see me mentioning it a few times. It actually let me suck into what Lawrence would feel. The weather is pretty terrible and perhaps Ned is feeling for it.
Well it escalated so bad that Ned is unable to deal with it
I was not discontented with this state of things, for it had seemed to me that discipline, or at least formal discipline, was a virtue of peace: a character or stamp by which to mark off soldiers from complete men, and obliterate the humanity of the individual.
When you seen lots of blood and so,it can change you. I remember watching the film and seeing all that disillusionment. To be frank it really helped me in this time,it was crazy and I think what I gained from Ned himself is perhaps that composure. There is that quote that struck in my mind
The desert dweller could not take credit for his belief. He had never been either evangelist or proselyte. He arrived at this intense condensation of himself in God by shutting his eyes to the world,and to all the complex possibilities latent in him which only contact with wealth and temptations could bring forth. He attained a sure trust and a powerful trust, but of how narrow a field! His sterile experience robbed him of compassion and perverted his human kindness to the image of the waste in which he hid. Accordingly he hurt himself, not merely to be free, but to please himself.
I mean I could go disillusioned like Ned in the film with the culture shock,but it changed because you learnt something yourself. Actually Ned never seen himself as a hero,but a man of stagery and that is wonderful.
Anyway I apologise if it is brief but hopefully i can get that copy again! It si pretty fascinating
yes I did a thing peopleeee read it
