No Ordinary Mortals

 

An Acorn in the Forest

“I don’t think there is any such thing as an ordinary mortal.  Everyody has his own possibility of rapture in the experience of life.  All he has to do is recognize it and then  cultivate it and get going with it.  I always feel uncomfortable when people speak about ordinary mortals because I’ve never met an ordinary man, woman, or child.”

–Joseph Campbell in The Power of Myth
