– O, for an age so shelter’d from annoy
– That I may never know the changing of the moons
– Or hear the voice of busy common-sense.

*** John Keats ***

– Action is the refuge of people who have nothing whatsoever to do …
It’s the basis of the lack of imagination. It is the last resource of those
who know not how to dream … Action is limited and relative.
Unlimited and absolute is the vision of him who sits at ease
and watches, who walks in loneliness and dreams..

– The contemplative life, the life that has for its aim not doing
but being, and not being merely, but becoming – this is what the critical
spirit can give us. The gods live thus..

*** Oscar Wilde ***
