Going naked


On the High Line in New York, February 2017


“We go naked because we want nothing of this world; for we came
into the world naked and unclothed. As for not being ashamed to
show our members, the fact is that we do no sin with them and
therefore have no more shame in them than you have when you
show your hand or face or the other parts of your body that do not
lead you into carnal sin; whereas you use your members to commits
in and lechery, and so you cover them up and are ashamed of them.
But we are no more ashamed of showing them than we are of showing
our fingers, because we do not sin with them.”

Marco Polo, The Travels
(stories told by Marco Polo and written by Rustichello da Pisa)


I’m back again with my weekly quotation-inspired image.
