Quotes by David S. Reynolds  (?)

“I believe in you my soul, the other I am must not abase itself to you, And you must not be abased to the other. Loafe with me on the grass, loose the stop from your throat, Not words, not music or rhyme I want, not custom or lecture, not even the best, Only the lull I like, the hum of your valvèd voice. I mind how once we lay such a transparent summer morning, How you settled your head athwart my hips and gently turn’d over upon me, And parted the shirt from my bosom-bone, and plunged your tongue to my bare-stript heart, And reach’d till you felt my beard, and reach’d till you held my feet. Swiftly arose and spread around me the peace and knowledge that pass all the art and argument of the earth, And I know that the hand of God is the promise [originally “elderhand”] of my own, And I know that the spirit of God is the brother of my own, And that all the men ever born are also my brothers, and the women my sisters and lovers, And that a kelson of the creation is love.”
David S. Reynolds, Walt Whitman's America: A Cultural Biography

“He would once say that he wanted Leaves of Grass to be published as a pocket book, to be carried around everywhere: “That would tend to induce people to take me along with them and read me in the open air: I am nearly always successful with the reader in the open air.”
David S. Reynolds, Walt Whitman's America: A Cultural Biography

“without immortality all would be sham and sport of the most tragic nature.”
David S. Reynolds, Walt Whitman's America: A Cultural Biography
