11/9 Sunday Quotations

November 9, 2008

So in college we all used AIM… and I used to put quotes up on my profile.  And now I have this list of quotes just sitting around.  So I’m instituting “Sunday Quotations.”  I’ll share a quote and something else every Sunday.  Because I think just posting quotes is pretentious.  So you’ll get a thought or a picture or a question or something too.  Let’s start this shall we?

The Brain – is wider than the Sky –
For – put them side by side –
The one the other will contain
With ease – and You – beside-

The Brain is deeper than the sea –
For – hold them – Blue to Bue –
The one the other will absorb –
As sponges – Buckets – do

The Brain is just the weight of God –
For – Heft them – Pound for Pound –
And they will differ – if they do –
As syllable from Sound –

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)
