Poem, Prose and Pictures

Dionysus and Ariadne Creative Comforts

What is life if not a question?
A constant searching?
A continual reshuffle of the deck,
and it's not always the same hand that deals.

We go forward, or not,
but we seem to be in one continuous skin,
yet millions of nerve impulses. . .

Millions of impulses,
flowing through our private oceans.

--Countess Sigula

cateye Ants that weave webs like spiders,
Spiders that sing all night
and arrange their legs like lashes,
The lashes she wears around her eyes.

--Countess Sigula


The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear,
and the oldest and strongest kind of fear
is fear of the unknown

--H.P. Lovecraft

This living hand, now warm and capable of earnest grasping,
would if it were cold and in the icy silence of the tomb
So haunt thy days and chill thy dreaming nights
- that thou wouldst wish thine own heart dry of blood
So in my veins red life might stream again
And thou be conscience calmed ~ see here it is
~ I hold it towards you.

--John Keats

She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:

Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies. . .

Imagination Quotes:

Imagination is more important than knowledge.
--Albert Einstein

Many have no happier moments than those that they pass in solitude, abandoned to their own imagination, which sometimes puts sceptres in their hands or miters on their heads, shifts the scene of pleasure with endless variety, bids all the forms of beauty sparkle before them, and gluts them with every change of visionary luxury.

winged Roman god The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and sciences. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who no longer pauses to wonder and stand in rapt awe, is as good as dead, his eyes are closed.
--Albert Einstein

The soul without imagination is what an observatory would be without a telescope.
--H.W. Beecher

Imagination is the eye of the soul.

The poet's eye, in a fine frenzy rolling, doth glance from heaven to earth, from earth to heaven; and as imagination bodies forth the forms of things unknown, the poet's pen turns them to shape, and give to airy nothing a local habitation and a name; such tricks hath strong imagination.

Solitude is as needful to the imagination as society is wholesome for the character.
--J.R. Lowell

Those who hope for no other life are dead even for this.

I feel my immortality o'ersweep all pains, all tears, all times, all fears; and peal, like the eternal thunders of the deep, into my ears this truth -- thou livest forever!
