I do not understand! I understand nothing! I cannot understand nor do I want to understand! I want to believe! To Believe!

There are two ways to slide easily through life: to believe everything or to doubt everything; both ways save us from thinking.

My thought is me: that is why I cannot stop thinking. I exist because I think; I cannot keep from thinking.

Thus one can observe that those who proclaim piety as their goal and purpose usually turn into hypocrites.

everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.

it is hard enough to remember my opinions, without also remembering my reasons for them!

the supreme function of reason is to show man that some things are beyond reason.

'I dare say you're wondering why I don't put my arm round your waist,' the duchess said, after a pause: 'the reason is, that I'm doubtful about the temper of your flamingo. Shall I try the experiment?'

'He might bite,' Alice cautiously replied, not feeling at all anxious to have the experiment tried.

'Very true,' said the Duchess: 'flamingoes and mustard both bite. And the moral of that is - 'Birds of a feather flock together.''

'Only mustard isn't a bird,' Alice remarked.

'Right, as usual,' said the Duchess: what a clear way you have of putting things!'

among the green leaves as they shake
far down within some shadowy lake
to me a painted paroquet
hath been a most familiar bird
taught me my alphabet to say
to lisp my very earliest word
while in the wild wood i did lie
a child with a most knowing eye

your clear eye is the one absolutely beautiful thing.
i want to fill it with color and ducks,
the zoo of the new
whose name you meditate:
april snowdrop, indian pipe,
little

stalk without wrinkle,
pool in which images
should be grand and classical

not this troublous
wringing of hands, this dark
ceiling without a star.

Tonight Ill dream while in my bed
when silly thoughts go through my head
about the bugs and alphabet
and when I wake tomorrow Ill bet
that you and I will walk together again
cause I can tell that were going to be friends
