"A man of knowledge chooses a path with a heart and follows it. . .He knows that his life will be over altogether too soon. . . He knows because he sees that nothing is more important than anything else. In other words, a man of knowledge has no honor, no dignity, no family, no country. But only life to live"

"We are like sculptors, constantly carving out of others the image we long for, need, love or desire."
— Anaïs Nin
Khnumhotep and Niankhkhnum were ancient royal servants who shared the title “Overseer of the Manicurists in the Palace of King Niuserre.” The two men are depicted on their joint tomb in one of the most intimate poses allowed by Egyptian artistic conventions: face to face, with their noses touching. Niankhkhnum means “joined to life” and Khnumhotep means “joined to the blessed state of the dead;” together their names mean “joined in life and death.” They are believed by some archeologists to be the first same-sex couple in recorded history. The picture shows a detail from their tomb dating to around 2350 BC.
Just so we are clear on this.
