michael allyn wells ~defending poetry in american culture
This is a deeply frightening quote.
Ok Cindy, I suppose I can see how it could be. Let's visit a few other Christopher Morley quotes just for grins...."It's a good thing to turn your mind upside down now and then, like an hour-glass, to let the particles run the other way." "Printer's ink has been running a race against gunpowder these many, many years. Ink is handicapped, in a way, because you can blow up a man with gunpowder in half a second, while it may take twenty years to blow him up with a book. But the gunpowder destroys itself along with its victim, while a book can keep on exploding for centuries.""Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, every day, something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to continually be part of unanimity.""No man is lonely while eating spaghetti - it requires too much attention.""A man who has never made a woman angry is a failure in life."Let me credit Wikipedia for the additional quotes, but not the origional.
I definitely live this creed. Nice quote. I love it and understand it completely.K
