AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

Banquets.


Some minds corrode and grow inactive under the loss of personal liberty; others grow morbid and irritable; but it is the nature of the poet to become tender and imaginative in the loneliness of confinement. He banquets upon the honey of his own thoughts, and, like the captive bird, pours forth his soul in melody.

Washington Irving
