And ignorant of dos and don’ts
Enjoying in every moments &
Overcome with nostalgias of those bygone days.

90 North

At home, in my flannel gown, like a bear to its floe,

I sailed all night—till at last, with my black beard,
My furs and my dogs, I stood at the northern pole.

Ch 04 On The Advantages Of Silence Story 05

Galenus saw a fool hanging on with his hands to the collar of a learned man and insulting him, whereon he said: â??If he were learned he would not have come to this pass with an ignorant man.â??

Two wise men do not contend and quarrel
Nor does a scholar fight with a contemptible fellow.

An Essay On Man: Epistle I.

THE DESIGN.

Having proposed to write some pieces on human life and manners, such as (to use my Lord Bacon's expression) come home to men's business and bosoms, I thought it more satisfactory to begin with considering man in the abstract, his nature and his state; since, to prove any moral duty, to enforce any moral precept, or to examine the perfection or imperfection of any creature whatsoever, it is necessary first to know what condition and relation it is placed in, and what is the proper end and purpose of its being.

Mind has a ability to judge mind itself,
When the ignorant mind overcomes you,
The conscious mind emerges & make you conscious.

The riches of the poet are equal to his poetry

The Ride

And helped to lift it o'er a narrow brook.
No horse it had except one boy, who drew
His sister out in it the fields to view.

All is wellâ??in a prisonâ??to-night, and the warders are crying â??Allâ??s Well!â??
I must speak, for the sake of my heartâ??if itâ??s but to the walls of my cell.
For what does it matter to me if to-morrow I go where I will?
Iâ??m as free as I ever shall beâ??there is naught in my life to fulfil.

Ch 05 On Love And Youth Story 10

In the exuberance of youth, as it usually happens and as thou knowest, I was on the closest terms of intimacy with a sweetheart who had a melodious voice and a form beautiful like the moon just rising.

He, the down of whose cheek drinks the water of immortality,
Whoever looks at his sugar lips eats sweetmeats.
