Cruelty is a part of nature, at least of human nature, but it is the one thing that seems unnatural to us.More Robinson Jeffers [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If you should look for this place after a handful of lifetimes:
Perhaps of my planted forest a few
May stand yet, dark-leaved Australians or the coast cypress, haggard
With storm-drift; but fire and the axe are devils.
Look for foundations of sea-worn granite, my fingers had the art
To make stone love stone, you will find some remnant.More Robinson Jeffers [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The heads of strong old age are beautiful beyond all grace of youth.More Robinson Jeffers [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
As for me, I would rather be a worm in a wild apple than a son of man. But we are what we are, and we might remember not to hate any person, for all are vicious; And not to be astonished at any evil, all are deserved; And not to fear death; it is the only way to be cleansed.More Robinson Jeffers [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

We must unhumanize our views a little and become confident as the rock and ocean that we are made from.More Robinson Jeffers [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Does it matter whether you hate yourself? At least love your eyes that can see, your mind that can hear the music, the thunder of the wings.More Robinson Jeffers [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Meteors are not needed less than mountains:
shine, perishing republic.More Robinson Jeffers [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Know that however ugly the parts appear the whole remains beautiful.More Robinson Jeffers [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is only a little planet, but how beautiful it is.More Robinson Jeffers [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Know that however ugly the parts appear
the whole remains beautiful...
... the wholeness of life and things, the divine beauty
of the universe. Love that, not man
Apart from that, or else you will share man's pitiful confusions,
or drown in despair when his days darken.More Robinson Jeffers [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The greatest beauty is organic wholeness, the wholeness of life and things, the divine beauty of the universe.More Robinson Jeffers [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Justice and mercy/ Are human dreams, they do not concern the birds nor the fish nor eternal God.More Robinson Jeffers [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Hear the music, the thunder of the wings. Love the wild swan.More Robinson Jeffers [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Shiva... is the only hunter that will ever catch the wild swan; The prey she will take last is the wild white swan of the beauty of things. Then she will be alone, pure destruction, achieved and supreme, Empty darkness under the death-tent wings. She will build a nest of the swan's bones and hatch a new brood, Hang new heavens with new birds, all be renewed.More Robinson Jeffers [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Only the drum is confident, it thinks the world has not changedMore Robinson Jeffers [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
This wild swan of a world is no hunter's game.More Robinson Jeffers [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
And you, America, that passion made you. You were not born to
prosperity, you were born to love freedom.
You did not say "en masse," you said "independence." But we
cannot have all the luxuries and freedom also.More Robinson Jeffers [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
civilization is a transient sickness.More Robinson Jeffers [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When the sun shouts and people abound One thinks there were the ages of stone and the age of bronze And the iron age; iron the unstable metal; Steel made of iron, unstable as his mother; the tow-ered-up cities Will be stains of rust on mounds of plaster. Roots will not pierce the heaps for a time, kind rains will cure them, Then nothing will remain of the iron age And all these people but a thigh-bone or so, a poem Stuck in the world's thought, splinters of glass In the rubbish dumps, a concrete dam far off in the mounMore Robinson Jeffers [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I've changed my ways a little, I cannot now Run with you in the evenings along the shore, Except in a kind of dream, and you, if you dream a moment, You see me there.More Robinson Jeffers [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Oh heavy change. The world deteriorates like a rotting apple, worms and a skin.More Robinson Jeffers [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We might remember ... not to fear death; it is the only way to be cleansed.More Robinson Jeffers [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
