Art is man's nature; nature is God's art
Philip James Bailey
We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not figures on a dial. We should count time by heart throbs. He most lives who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.
Respect is what we owe; love, what we give
Envy's a coal comes hissing hot from Hell
What men call accident is God's own part
Human language... prevents us from sticking to the matter at hand.
(November 25, 1913 - December 03, 1993)
Political history is largely an account of mass violence and of the expenditure of vast resources to cope with mythical fears and hopes
It's a troublesome world. All the people who're in it
are troubled with troubles almost every minute.
You ought to be thankful, a whole heaping lot,
for the places and people you're lucky you're not.
