You cannot take what you have not given, and you must give yourself. You cannot buy the Revolution. You cannot make the Revolution. You can only be the Revolution. It is in your spirit, or it is nowhere.”
Ursula K. Le Guin The Dispossessed (Venus, Mercury, Vertex, Sun in Libra)
It was like my adolescent bible, existentialist guide, awakener to deeper occult consciousness, intellect challenger, the Everything.
Her other novels were probably equally iconic (The Left Hand of Darkness) but her passing today made me think of the original boy wizard Ged and of the female protagonist in the trilogy, Tenar the trainee priestess.
Did her work influence you at all? Thoughts?
