to live happily is an inward power of the soul.

Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.

we are like the spider. we weave our life and then move along in it. we are like the dreamer who dreams and then lives in the dream. this is true for the entire universe.

If you are a dreamer, come in,
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer...
If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin.
Come in!
Come in!

Listen to what they did
James Fenton

Don't listen to what they said
What was written in blood
Had been set up in lead

Lead tears the heart
Lead tears the brain
What was written in blood
Has been set up again

The heart is a drum
The heart is a snare
The snare is in the blood
The blood is in the air

Listen to what they did
Listen to what is to come
Listen to the blood
Listen to the drum.

one of man’s greatest obstacles is to learn to sit quietly in his room.

Yi with his archer's skill,
Could hit a target at a hundred paces.
But when arrowpoints meet head on,
What has this to do with the power of skill?
When the wooden man begins to sing,
The stone woman gets up to dance...

The unreal is more powerful than the real, because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it. Because it's only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles. Wood rots. People, well, they die. But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on.

on my way up north
up on the ventura
i pulled back the hood
and i was talking to you
and i knew then it would be
a life long thing
but i didn't know that we
we could break a silver lining

and i'm so sad
like a good book
i can't put this day back
a sorta fairytale
with you

there is a wisdom that is woe; but there is a woe that is madness. and there is a catskill eagle in some souls that can alike dive down into the blackest gorges, and soar out of them again and become invisible in the sunny spaces. and even if he for ever flies within the gorge, that gorge is in the mountains; so that even in his lowest swoop the mountain eagle is still higher than other birds upon the plain, even though they soar.

he clasps the crag with crooked hands;
close to the sun in lonely lands,
ringed with the azure world, he stands.

the wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;
he watches from his mountain walls,
and like a thunderbolt he falls.

i shot the arrow in the air
it fell to earth, i knew not where
for, so swiftly it flew, the sight
could not follow it in its flight

i breathed a song into the air
it fell to earth, i knew not where
for who has sight so keen and strong
that it can follow the flight of song
