Lonely Tree on Summer Day
“Little things console us because little things afflict us”.
“And into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul”.
“The more a man can forget, the greater the number of metamorphoses which his life can undergo; the more he can remember, the more divine his life becomes”.
“There are two ways to get enough. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less”.
“Like as the waves make towards the pebbl’d shore, so do our minutes, hasten to their end”.
The First Day of Summer
“Tornerà un altro inverno
Cadranno mille pètali di rose
La neve coprirà tutte le cose
E forse un’altra estate tornerà”.
Under a Tree
“What we see changes what we know. What we know changes what we see“.
Along the Road
“We all believe we can choose our own path from among the many alternatives. But perhaps it’s more accurate to say that we make the choice unconsciously”.
