FENÊTRE

 

“The earth is not a mere fragment of dead history,
stratum upon stratum like the leaves of a book,
to be studied by geologists and antiquaries chiefly,
but living poetry like the leaves of a tree,
which precede flowers and fruit ~
not a fossil earth, but a living earth;
compared with whose great central life
all animal and vegetable life is merely parasitic.”

 

~ Henry David Thoreau ~

By violent swiftness
And lose by over-running.

“The evolution of the brain not only overshot
the needs of prehistoric man,
it is the only example of evolution providing
a species with an organ which
it does not know how to use.”
