March 29

From Quotes
Love means the body, the soul, the life, the entire being. We feel love as we feel the warmth of our blood, we breathe love as we breathe air, we hold it in ourselves as we hold our thoughts. Nothing more exists for us.
Guy De Maupassant

Quotes of the day from previous years:
Love is an act of endless forgiveness, a tender look which becomes a habit. ~ Peter Ustinov (recent death)
If anything can survive the probe of humour it is clearly of value, and conversely all groups who claim immunity from laughter are claiming special privileges which should not be granted. ~ Eric Idle (born March 29, 1943)
Good books tell the truth, even when they're about things that never have been and never will be. They're truthful in a different way. ~ Stanisław Lem (recent death)
I have been all men known to history,
Wondering at the world and at time passing;
I have seen evil, and the light blessing
Innocent love under a spring sky.

~ R. S. Thomas ~
I have known exile and a wild passion
Of longing changing to a cold ache.
King, beggar and fool, I have been all by turns,
Knowing the body’s sweetness, the mind’s treason;
Taliesin still, I show you a new world, risen,
Stubborn with beauty, out of the heart’s need.

~ R. S. Thomas ~


Perhaps, the 29th being the day on which the last American troops withdrew from South Vietnam, this quote by William Westmoreland, the threatre commander, could be considered:

"It's not that we lost the war militarily. The fact is that we as a nation did not make good our commitment to the South Vietnamese."

I am like a tree,
From my top boughs I can see
The footprints that led up to me. ~ R. S. Thomas

  • 3 because the imagery of comparison here is comfortable...the ideology of growth and experience to that of the tree and the struggle to get to the top, from the roots to the branches, so to speak. A sustainable foundation in the train of thought. Zarbon 05:04, 2 May 2008 (UTC)
