According to the story, Alexander was curious about Diogenes and decided to visit him while he was living in a barrel in the marketplace. When he arrived, he found Diogenes sunbathing, and he greeted him by saying, "I am Alexander, the great king." Diogenes, who was famously indifferent to social status, replied, "And I am Diogenes, the dog."
Amused by Diogenes' response, Alexander asked if there was anything he could do for him. Diogenes replied, "Yes, stand out of my sunlight." This simple request showed Diogenes' commitment to his principles and his disdain for the trappings of power and wealth. Alexander, impressed by Diogenes' confidence and independence, reportedly remarked, "If I were not Alexander, I would be Diogenes."
c. 1300, from Old French essillier "exile, banish, expel, drive off" (12c.), from Late Latin exilare/exsilare, from Latin exilium/exsilium "banishment, exile; place of exile," from exul "banished person," from ex "away" (see ex-); according to Watkins the second element is from PIE root *al- (2) "to wander" (source also of Greek alaomai "to wander, stray, or roam about").
"a wanderer, one of a tribe of people who have no fixed abode," 1550s (in plural, nomades), from French nomade (16c.), from Latin Nomas (genitive Nomadis) "wandering groups in Arabia," from Greek nomas (genitive nomados, plural nomades) "roaming, roving, wandering" (from place to place to find pasturage for their flocks or herds)
"attribution of living souls to inanimate objects," 1866, reintroduced by English anthropologist Sir Edward Burnett Taylor (1832-1917), who defined it (1871) as the "theory of the universal animation of nature," from Latin anima "life, breath, soul" (from PIE root *ane- "to breathe") + -ism.
“Your body is not a temple, it’s an amusement park. Enjoy the ride.”
Open your eyes.
Why tell me that dream?
You said I could tell you
whatever I wanted.
All right. Anything else you
should tell me before we start?
Nothing you don't know.
I was about to turn.
I liked eating, sleeping,
making love, like everyone.
And you know what everyone
does when they get up.

Lord, forgive my sins, for I am a human being. Did you not create me so that I might make mistakes? Did you not create me a sinner so that I could experience your grace? Lord, forgive me, for I am afraid. I thought that time has more power to change and alter things than human will, but now I see time does not pertain to things in themselves out there but is a form of perception of the human mind. A group of exiles in the city forced to beg and prostitute themselves for lack of work in order to survive is perhaps a reality that will always occur in human history and is part of our sinful naturev. Lord, for I must be strong and do your work. Guide me. Amen.
Lord, I have faithfully committed myself to the mission that will crown your glory. I will build an inn for nomads, a refuge for the lost, a shrine for pilgrims, a market for merchants. On the ashes of the old city a new city will arise, and like a flower garden this place will blossom and reflect its beauty to the whole world.
