“Can you please crawl out your window?
Use your arms and legs it won’t ruin you
How can you say he will haunt you?
You can go back to him any time you want to”
(Bob Dylan in Can you please crawl out your window?)
"I think I could turn and live with animals, they are so placid and self-contain'd, I stand and look at them long and long. They do not sweat and whine about their condition, They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins, They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God..." (W. Whitman in Song of Myself, no. 32) Aachen (D)
“The Goddess of Wealth
…who sits on the Red Lotus flower
offers the fair flow of water,
affluence of paddy harvest,
…name and fame,
…lots of wealth and property;
she also always offers longevity
…for those who are not deceptive and trickery!”
(V.K. Kanniappan translation from Tamil Nalvazhi)
"Sad heart, what will the future bring To happier men when we are gone? What golden days shall dawn for them, Transcending all we gaze upon?" (J.A. Symonds in A vista) Liège (B)
