E. E. Cummings’ Best Lines

“since feeling is first
who pays any attention
to the syntax of things
will never wholly kiss you;

wholly to be a fool
while Spring is in the world

my blood approves,
and kisses are a better fate
than wisdom”


I have spent much/most of my life in the company of ideals, reason, and rational thinking, but, in the end, it is feelings, emotions, passions, love that give us the most memorable and satisfying personal experiences. These experiences are also much closer to the life of the spirit and, what Johnny Clegg has called “the spirit of the great heart”. More and more these daze, I go back to the Keatsian life of sensations where I spent my first 20 years for the most part.
