tabe218's quotes

...we must join neither the idolaters nor the "debunkers" of human love....nineteenth-century literature...talk as if they thought falling in love was the same thing as sanctification....The debunkers...are always pulling up and exposing the grubby roots of our natural loves....The highest does not stand without the lowest. A plant must have roots below as well as sunlight above and roots must be grubby. Much of the grubbiness is clean dirt if only you will leave it in the garden and it keep on sprinkling it over the library table.

Light dies before thine uncreating word:


Thy hand, great Anarch, lets the curtain fall;


And universal darkness buries all.
