No one can understand the heights of heaven, the depths of earth, or everything on a king’s mind and heart.
The heights charm us, but the steps do not; with the mountain in our view we love to walk the plains.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

Of what use, however, is a general certainty that an insect will not walk with his head hindmost, when what you need to know is the play of inward stimulus that sends him hither and thither in a network of possible paths?

The wages of sin are death, but after they take the taxes out, it’s more like a tired feeling, really. Paula Poundstone

In this state of absorbed contemplation, there is no longer any question of holding an object in view; the vision is such that seeing and seen are one; object and act of vision have become identical. (Plotinus)

It’s little I care what path I take,
And where it leads it’s little I care;
I wish I could walk for a day and a night,
And find me at dawn in a desolate place
With never the rut of a road in sight,
Nor the roof of a house, nor the eyes of a face.
EDNA ST. VINCENT MILLAY, Departure, Collected Poems, 1923

There are 4 things you must never do: lie, steal, cheat, or drink.
But if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love.
If you must steal, steal away from bad company.
If you must cheat, cheat death.
And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away.
Brianne Kelly Darragh . IRELAND.
