Famous quotes containing the words examination, slit and/or lamp:

    Whilst Marx turned the Hegelian dialectic outwards, making it an instrument with which he could interpret the facts of history and so arrive at an objective science which insists on the translation of theory into action, Kierkegaard, on the other hand, turned the same instruments inwards, for the examination of his own soul or psychology, arriving at a subjective philosophy which involved him in the deepest pessimism and despair of action.
    Sir Herbert Read (1893–1968)

    For, brother, know that this is art, and you
    With a cold incautious sorrow stricken dumb,
    Have your own vanishing slit of light let through,
    Passionate as winter, where only a few may come:
    Not idiots in the street find out the lees
    In the last drink of dying Socrates.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    When the lamp is shattered,
    The light in the dust lies dead;
    When the cloud is scattered,
    The rainbow’s glory is shed;
    When the lute is broken,
    Sweet tones are remembered not;
    When the lips have spoken,
    Loved accents are soon forgot.
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)
