  3. I have found something of interest:




    It is interesting that this existed at one time and Wyndham was involved. I was looking into Norwegian actors when I found it.

  4. I don't know what I just watched, but I liked it. I've only seen one Fellini movie, La Dulce Vita. I liked that one also. Presumably one day I'll end up watching 8 1/2...

  5. I understand you have Viewed this forum anon. Pray come back to this place. Or at least PM me!

  12. multiple premium vagaries of form which collude with the inexhaustible inestimable valuations of enchanting wordsmiths

  14. "...the most legitimate use [a person] can make of its freedom is precisely to recognize that it does not belong to itself..."

  15. O garment not golden but gilded,

    O garden where all men may dwell,

    O tower not of ivory, but builded

    By hands that reach heaven from hell;

    O mystical rose of the mire,

    O house not of gold but of gain,

    O house of unquenchable fire,

    Our Lady of Pain!

  16. cf "The Ontological Mystery", Gabriel Marcel.


    I often read philosophers who are/were very depressed. This influences their work - Kierkegaard, for example, was very intent on conveying his message, and this seriousness makes him come across as perhaps too earnest, the type of person you might edge away from while conversing with - or Wittgenstein, whose writings have a curious absence of the "I", and it's clear that there are some things that affected him deeply yet he cannot talk about. There's an interesting quote I'm sure I've shared with you already about this by him, about kneeling.


    So it is a pleasant day to read Marcel, and find someone whose philosophy is one of joy.

  17. I have a really beautifully formatted book of Sappho's fragments called if not, winter. Fragment 50, which is VERY Greek:


    For the man who is beautiful is beautiful to see

    but the good man will at once also beautiful be.
