“No one sees farther into a generalization than his own knowledge of details extends.”
― Wiliam James

George Santayana
“When we feel the poetic thrill, is it not that we find sweep in the concise and depth in the clear, as we might find all the lights of the sea in the water of a jewel? And what is a philosophic thought but such an epitome?”
George Santayana

Gustave Flaubert
“I envision a style: a style that would be beautiful, that someone will invent some day, ten years or ten centuries from now, one that would be rhythmic as verse, precise as the language of the sciences, undulant, deep-voiced as a cello, tipped with flame: a style that would pierce your idea like a dagger, and on which your thought would sail easily ahead over a smooth surface, like a skiff before a good tail wind.”
Gustave Flaubert

Testy McTesterson
“Literature of escape," Ray Bradbury's work is sometimes called with a sneer. But then, as Tolkien once observed, who other than jailers are fearfully preoccupied with escape? Kirk wrote that the ideologue, in particular, denounces "escape" because he is a prisoner of his own political obsessions, and misery loves company.”
Testy McTesterson

W.B. Yeats
“From man's blood-sodden heart are sprung
Those branches of the night and day
Where the gaudy moon is hung.
What's the meaning of all song?
"Let all things pass away.”
W.B. Yeats
