    So many questions, Grasshopper

    all of these quotations reference a persons individual perspective--- the first ones- show how someone wishes or hopes for the lesser evil in the world (or just whatever would benefit them more)--- and the others- talk of how everything is intermingled within everything (sort of like a hindu "thou art that" kind of thing)-- so it just takes more than one's self to create a situation or achievement- there are other aspects involved
