A few treats from The Man Who Was Thursday

"No man should leave in the universe anything of which he is afraid..."

"...there are no words to express the abyss between isolation and having one ally. It may be conceded to the mathematicians that four is twice two. But two is not twice one; two is two thousand times one. That is why, in spite of a hundred disadvantages, the world will always return to monogamy." hahaha!

"...always be a comic in a tragedy. What the deuce else can you do?"

"Shall I tell you the secret of the whole world? It is that we have only known the back of the world..." [Reminiscent of my favorite George MacDonald--At the Back of the Northwind]

"The philosopher may sometimes love the infinite; the poet alwaysalways loves the finite. For him the great moment is not the creation of light, but the creation of the sun and moon." <3

Just finished this morning and, of course, loved it!
