“Child of the pure unclouded brow
And dreaming eyes of wonder!
Though time be fleet, and I and thou
Are half a life asunder,
Thy loving smile will surely hail
The love-gift of a fairy-tale.”
—Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (18321898)
“To depend on ones own child is blindness in one eye;
To depend on a stranger, blindness in both eyes.”
“Nights, I squat in the cornucopia
Of your left ear, out of the wind,
Counting the red stars and those of plum-color.
The sun rises under the pillar of your tongue.”
—Sylvia Plath (19321963)
“Tell me who is able to keep his bed chaste, or which goddess is able to live with one god alone?”
—Propertius Sextus (c. 5016 B.C.)
