Death is a Dialogue between,
The Spirit and the Dust.
The Complete Poems
And I will show that nothing can
happen more beautiful than death.
Starting from Paumanok
The most beautiful emotion we can
experience is the mystical.
Einstein, His Life and Times
O, it is excellent
To have a giant's strength, but it is tyrannous
To use it like a giant.
-William Shakespeare, Measure for Measure
What I aspired to be,
And was not, comforts me.
-R. Browning, Rabbi Ben Ezra
O Solitude! if I must with thee dwell,
Let it not be among the jumbled heap
Of murky buildings: climb with me the steep,-
Nature's observatory; ...
-Keats, Sonnet: O Solitude
O Freedom! if to me belong
Nor mighty Milton's gift divine
Nor Marvell's wit and graceful song,
Still with a love as deep and strong
As theirs, I lay, like them, my best gifts on thy shine!
Art is silence made clear.
-Jean Cocteau, La Rappel a l'Ordre
On life's vast ocean diversely we sail,
Reason the card, but Passion is the gale.
-Pope, Moral Essays, I
Now fades the glimmering landscape on the sight,
And all the air a solemn stillness holds.
-Gray, Elergy Written in a Country Churchyard
Lord of the far horizons,
Give us the eyes to see
Over the verge of the sundown
The beauty that is to be.
-Bliss Carman, Lord of the Far Horizons
The world, an entity out of everything,
was created by neither gods nor men,
but was, is and will be
eternally living fire,
regularly becoming ignited
and regularly becoming extinghished.
-Heraclitus,The Cosmic Fragments
