Poem of the day
by Padraic Colum
SANDALWOOD, you say, and in your thoughts it chimes
With Tyre and Solomon; to me it rhymes
With places bare upon Pacific mountains,
With spaces empty in the minds of men.
The Kings of Hawaii call out their men,
The men go up the mountains in files;
Read complete poem
Use what talents you have; the woods would have little music if no birds sang their song except those who sang best.
Comments about poetsAnotherPoem: I whispered, 'I am too young,' / And then, 'I am old enough'; - William Butler Yeats
Candy Frank: Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire. - William Butler Yeats
Maria Ressa: "Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity." William Butler Yeats
Gnarly Nesh: The Cap and Bells
BY WILLIAM BUTLER YEATS
The jester walked in the garden:
The garden had fallen still;
He bade his soul rise upward
And stand on her window-sill.
#BLM: Bertolt Brecht >>> any other epic theatre playwright.
Jeff Stookey: “A man who doesn’t know the truth is just an idiot, but a man who knows the truth and calls it a lie is a crook.” --Bertolt Brecht, from "Galileo." Perhaps Trump is both, in his self-delusion.
Sam Cheung Ho Sum: Every page a victory.
Who cooked the feast for the victors ?
Every 10 years a great man.
Who paid the bill ?
So many reports.
So many questions.
－"Questions from a Work who Reads" by Bertolt Brecht
Lido Shuffle: to paraphrase Bertolt Brecht's Galileo: pity not the land that has no hero, pity the land who has Joseph-Gordon Levitt as a hero
David Challinor: Is it any wonder I've been playing & listening to more Kurt Weill/Bertolt Brecht/Hanns Eisler than usual lately? I'm feeling a sad & angry kinship with their times
주진무: [명언]Deeds, not words shall speak me. (John Fletcher)play
John Wall: Great Movie Lines:
Diction! Watch your diction, Ralph. You're slurring your words.
Marlon Brando slurred his words, u know. Montgomery Clift slurred his words. James Dean slurred his words. They were the greatest actors in the world and nobody could understand a word they said.
Jason Adams: James Whale's Fave Doughboy Douglass Montgomery
Gixi/Grace 江南阿姨: mind you shi fu/tu di relationships ARE considered taboo/incestuous culturally (guess what so are student/teacher relationships IRL - ICK!!!) but they're also a trope in wuxia fiction --> Return of Condor Heroes - Yang Guo/Xiao Long Nu my heaaaaaaaaart
noe: when oscar wilde said "behind every exquisite thing that existed, there was something tragic" bro i really felt that
Francisco Ribeiro: “Literature always anticipates life. It doesn't copy it but it molds it to its purpose. ”
- Oscar Wilde
