Words form the thread on which we string ourexperiences. If art is to nourish the roots of our culture,society must set theartistfree to follow hisvision wherever it takes him. All the soarings of my mindbegin in myblood. It is courage,courage,courage,that raises the blood of life to crimsonsplendor. All men are creative but few areartists. Culture opens the senseof beauty. The truth is that the beginning of anythingand its end alike are touching. Eternity is a terrible thought. I mean, where’s it going to end? We must expect everything and feareverything from timeand from men. Experience is thenameeveryone givesto their mistakes. Just as courageimperils life,fear protects it. The eternal silenceof theseinfinite spaces frightens me. Life is one vast tangled conglomeration,inflamed with passion. Specialized meaninglessness hascome to be regarded, in certain circles, as a hallmark of truescience. The grand thing about the human mind is that it can see meaninglessness asultimate meaning. The greatest mistake you can make in lifeis continually fearingyou will make one. What’s in a name? That which we call aroseby any other name would smellas sweet. Only passions, great passions, can elevate thesoulto do great things. I like reality. It tastesof bread. He that plants thorns must never expectto gather roses. The whole of scienceis nothing more thana refinement of everydaythinking. All credibility, all good conscience, all evidenceof truth come only from the senses. Speech is of time,silence is ofeternity. Nothing can cure the soul but the senses, just as nothingcan cure the sensesbut the soul. Taste is the enemy ofcreativeness. Thinking is the endeavor to capture realityby means of ideas. Time and space are fragments of theinfinite for the use of finite creatures. Truth seems to come with its final word and the final wordgives birth to its next. Words form the thread on which we string our experiences. s/e + ight
