Karl Popper is understandably angry at Hegel, and I more or less agree with his views though not with his method. But to identify Marx with "totalitarianism" is to stretch the point a bit too far. Marx's views are entirely opposite of how Popper has...more

Pablo Neruda
“I learned about life

from life itself,

love I learned in a single kiss

and could teach no one anything

except that I have lived

with something in common among men,

when fighting with them,

when saying all their say in my song.

Pablo Neruda- "Ode to the Book,”
Pablo Neruda, Selected Poems

Toni Morrison
“The plight (and resistance) of children living in a wholly commercialized environment that equates “entertainment” with happiness, products with status, “things” with love, and that is terrified of the free (meaning un-commodified, unpurchaseable) imagination of the young. (Although children participate enthusiastically in the “love me so buy me” pattern, I think they are taught to think that way and that on some deep level they know what is being substituted.)- Tony Morrison -Interview - (The Big Box)”
Toni Morrison

Edith Wharton
“My little old dog
a heart-beat
at my feet”
Edith Wharton

Octavio Paz
“o love is to battle, if two kiss
the world changes, desires take flesh
thoughts take flesh, wings sprout
on the backs of the slave, the world is real
and tangible, wine is wine, bread
regains its savor, water is water,
to love is to battle, to open doors,
to cease to be a ghost with a number
forever in chains, forever condemned
by a faceless master;
the world changes
if two look at each other and see

Piedra de Sol (The Sun Stone), translated by Eliot Weinberger”
Octavio Paz

John Keats
“Ask yourself my love whether you are not very cruel to have so entrammelled me, so destroyed my freedom. Will you confess this in the Letter you must write immediately, and do all you can to console me in it — make it rich as a draught of poppies to intoxicate me —write the softest words and kiss them that I may at least touch my lips where yours have been. For myself I know not how to express my devotion to so fair a form: I want a brighter word than bright, a fairer word than fair.”
John Keats, Bright Star: Love Letters and Poems of John Keats to Fanny Brawne
