Negligence: A Poem by Collette Kristevski

We mine the mind,
– philosophize.
What we find
we think is gold.
We plunge the depth
of intellect,
but neglect the soul.

//Collette Kristevski, 3/8/2019

“Men are often called intelligent wrongly. Intelligent men are not those who are erudite in the sayings and books of the wise men of old, but those who have an intelligent soul and can discriminate between good and evil. …These men alone should truly be called intelligent.”
St. Anthony
