“What is that you express in your eyes? It seems to me more than all the print I have read in my life.”
― Walt Whitman

TIME PASSES. EVEN WHEN IT SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE. EVEN each tick of the second hand aches like the pulse of blood behind a bruise. It passes unevenly, in strange lurches and dragging lulls, but pass it does. EVEN for me.

It seems a fantastic paradox, but it is nevertheless a most important truth, that no architecture can be truly noble which is not imperfect.And this is easily demonstrable.

Hugo von Hofmannsthal
"Sie trug den Becher in der Hand
— Ihr Kinn und Mund glich seinem Rand —,
So leicht und sicher war ihr Gang,
Kein Tropfen aus dem Becher sprang.

So leicht und fest war seine Hand:
Er ritt auf einem jungen Pferde,
Und mit nachlässiger Gebärde
Erzwang er, daß es zitternd stand.

Jedoch, wenn er aus ihrer Hand
Den leichten Becher nehmen sollte,
So war es beiden allzuschwer;
Denn beide bebten sie so sehr,
Daß keine Hand die andre fand
Und dunkler Wein am Boden rollte.

Leonard Forster's prose translation, from The Penguin Book of German Verse:
The Two

She carried the cup in her hand — her chin and mouth were like its rim — her gait was so light and assured, not a drop spilled out of the cup.

His hand was equally light and firm; he rode on a young horse, and with a careless movement he made it stand still, quivering.

But when he was to take the light cup from her hand, it was too heavy for both of them: for both trembled so much that no hand found the other hand, and dark wine flowed on the ground."

Note from John Derbyshire:

(Here is one of his gems, a sweet, thought-provoking little poem he wrote in 1896, when he was 22 years old.

Von Hofmannsthal seems not to have been, or at least to have believed he was not, very good at human relations. In this poem we see a man and a woman both perfectly confident and capable when each is alone with a solitary task. When they come together for mutual accomplishment, though, emotions kick in and suddenly everything is far more difficult.)

"How could they do it, how could they?"
"I don't know but they did it. They've done it before and they did it tonight and they'll do it again and when they do it - seems that only children weep."

Ich bin ein Wanderer und ein Bergsteiger, sagte er zu seinem Herzen,
ich liebe die Ebenen nicht und es scheint, ich kann nicht lange still

I am a wanderer and mountain-climber, said he to his heart. I love not
the plains, and it seems I cannot long sit still.

It seems acceptable today to scream for revolution, without any concept of what will follow it. This is just what the forces at large want, for who will follow a man who doesn't know where he's going?

On The Experience of Moral Confusion
Consumer debt is the lifeblood of our economy. All modern nation states are built on deficit spending. Debt has come to be the central issue of international politics. But nobody seems to know exactly what it is, or how to think about it.
