In Other Words

One doesn’t discover new lands

without consenting to lose sight of the shore

for a very long time.

– Andre Gide

    I agree. In the country of Art — we can leave the mundane world (for a long time) and discover inner worlds and other universes.

    There is no Frigate like a Book
    To take us Lands away,
    Nor any Coursers like a Page
    Of prancing Poetry –
    This Traverse may the poorest take
    Without oppress of Toll –
    How frugal is the Chariot
    That bears a Human soul.
