“Poets are never young, in one sense. Their delicate ear hears the far-off whispers of eternity, which coarser souls must travel towards for scores of years before their dull sense is touched by them. A moment’s insight is sometimes worth a life’s experience.” — O.W. Holmes, Sr.

    I think this is about 95% maudlin nonsense, by the way. Delicate ear, far-off whispers, blah blah blah, go write a sonnet about a flower or something, okay?

    But there is still that 5% of me that holds out for the possibility that divine insight (the only real kind) can outweigh the cold inevitability of what we know as real life.
