Words about being 
On, In, or With
the world
“Implicit in the banking concept is the assumption of a dichotomy between human beings and the world: a person is merely in the world, not with the world or with others; the individual is spectator, not re-creator.”
Paulo Freire, 1970, Pedagogy of the Oppressed 
“Most people are on the world, not in it — have no conscious sympathy or relationship to anything about them — undiffused, separate, and rigidly alone like marbles of polished stone, touching but separate.”
John Muir, between 1867-1911, John of the Mountains, The Unpublished Journals of John Muir
