“I ask for nothing”

All or Nothing?

“Perhaps when we find ourselves wanting everything, it is because we are dangerously close to wanting nothing.” — Sylvia Plath

Which do you find more dangerous: wanting nothing, or wanting everything?

One thought on ““I ask for nothing”

  1. Coo, this is a philosophical post! Interesting quote. How does Plath define “everything” and “nothing”? My kids asked me what I want for Christmas, and I said “family, laughs and good food”. In their language, I have asked for nothing, but for me, what I’ve asked for is everything.
