this a quote worth sharing

School and lack of sleep are quickly eradicating my sanity and halfway through most sentences today I forgot what I was saying and I also just erupted into laughter over a dumb sentence I wrote at work today (the sentence was: “cocktail bitters are you scared?” and i’m still laughing). i’m writing another essay right now on Emerson’s nature and wow what a beautiful work that i can hardly comprehend with this frenzied state of mind.

but i’m going to take a moment, and read this quote a couple of times (slowly) because it’s breathtaking.

All men are in some degree impressed by the face of the world, Some men even to delight. This love of beauty is Taste. Others have the same love in such excess, that, not content with admiring, they seek to embody it in new forms.The creation of beauty is Art.

-Emerson, Nature

As I Lay Dying, William Faulkner, 171-172

critic10sThat was when I learned that words are not food; that words don’t ever fit even what they are trying to say at. I knew that fear was invented by someone that had never had the fear; pride, who never had the pride… that we had had to use one another by words like spiders dancing by their mouths from a mean, swinging and twisting and never touching, and that only through the blows of the switch could my blood and their blood flow as one stream….

…He had a word, too, Love, he called it. But I had been used to words for a long time, I knew that that word was like others: just a shape to fill a lack; that when the right time came, you wouldn’t need a word for that anymore than for pride or fear.
