    That other one wanted to think his way to life,
    Sure that the ultimate poem was the mind,
    Or of the mind, or of the mind in these
    Elysia, these days, half earth, half mind;
    Half sun, half thinking of the sun; half sky,
    Half desire for indifference about the sky.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    The angelic ones
    Speak of the soul, the mind. It is
    An animal.
