Quote LeftThank you Poetry Soup for all your wonderful comments and support. My first book entitle "Bits And Barges" is available through Publish America. I have multiple sclerosis and had a really bad flare up in January (I couldn't talk, write or walk very well). I made a promise to myself: if I returned to normal, then I would start trying to get my poetry published. Well, here I am with my first book (I can also walk, talk and write almost normally). Thanks all of you for your support. You're the best! Quote Right

Quote Left The future of humanity is uncertain, even in the most prosperous countries, and the quality of life deteriorates; and yet I believe that what is being discovered about the infinitely large and infinitely small is sufficient to absolve this end of the century and millennium. What a very few are acquiring in knowledge of the physical world will perhaps cause this period not to be judged as a pure return of barbarism. Quote Right

Quote Left In order for the wheel to turn, for life to be lived, impurities are needed, and the impurities of impurities in the soil, too, as is known, if it is to be fertile. Dissension, diversity, the grain of salt and mustard are needed: Fascism does not want them, forbids them, and that's why you're not a Fascist; it wants everybody to be the same, and you are not. But immaculate virtue does not exist either, or if it exists it is detestable. Quote Right

Quote Left The butterfly's attractiveness derives not only from colors and symmetry: deeper motives contribute to it. We would not think them so beautiful if they did not fly, or if they flew straight and briskly like bees, or if they stung, or above all if they did not enact the perturbing mystery of metamorphosis: the latter assumes in our eyes the value of a badly decoded message, a symbol, a sign.
