Seite 26 - I contradict myself, (I am large, I contain multitudes.) I concentrate toward them that are nigh, I wait on the doorslab. Who has done his day's work? who will soonest be through with his supper? Who wishes to walk with me? Will you speak before I am gone? will you prove already too late?
Seite 452 - Sex: sex: sex: whether you sing or make a machine, or go to the North Pole, or love your mother, or build a house, or black shoes, or anything — anything at all — it 's sex, sex, sex : sex is the root of it all: sex — the coming together of men and women : sex : sex.
Seite 217 - Hush, once again that cry intense! High-venturing spirits have your will! Urge the last freak, prolong your glee, Keen voyagers, while still the immense Sea-spaces haunt your memory, With zests and pangs ineffable. Not in the sunshine of old woods Ye won your warrant to be gay By duteous, sweet observances, Who dared through darkening solitudes, And 'mid the hiss of alien seas, The larger ordinance obey.
Seite 97 - Oh! she was strangely different from the average: entirely herself: as simple as nature: true, honest: beautiful as a tree is tall, leafy, rich, full, free — is a tree. Yet, free as she was by nature, bound by no conventionalisms, she was the most courageous of women: more than queenly: of high aspect in the best sense.
Seite 452 - They are not quite full — not quite entire : the woman who has denied the best of herself — the woman who has discredited the animal want, the eager physical hunger, the wish of that which though we will not allow it to be freely spoken of is still the basis of all that makes life worth while and advances the horizon of discovery.
Seite 423 - The Journeyman Joiner. Both books were written during their author's socialistic period, before the revolution of 1848, and both were translated from the French by one of the New England Transcendentalists. The Countess of Rudolstadt was the sequel to Consuelo, which Whitman had described as "the noblest work left by George Sand— the noblest in many respects, on its own field, in all literature.
Seite 540 - I take things very easy — the rule is to come at 9 and go at 4 — but I don't come at 9, and only stay till 4 when I want...
Seite 513 - My book is my best letter, my response, my truest explanation of all. In it I have put my body & spirit. You understand this better & fuller & clearer than any one else. And I too fully & clearly understand the loving & womanly letter it has evoked. Enough that there surely exists between...
Seite 159 - Goethe impresses me as above all to stand for essential literature, art, life — to argue the importance of centering life in self — in perfect persons — perfect you, me : to force the real into the abstract ideal : to make himself, Goethe, the supremest example of personal identity: everything making for it: in us, in Goethe : every man repeating the same experience.
Seite 185 - That the most of those who wrote agreed upon Emerson should occasion neither surprise nor disappointment: that seems as it should be: Emerson is great— oh! very great: I have not attempted to decide how great, how vast, how subtle: but very, very: he was a far-reaching force: a star of the first, the very first, magnitude maybe: without a doubt that.
