A blessing because it brings about a movement, an energy which, when it peaks, creates a poem. Or a moment of happiness.

A convention is a social convenience, as, for example, money ... but it is absurd to take money too seriously, to confuse it with real wealth ... In somewhat the same way, thoughts, ideas and words are "coins" for real things.

  • Example isn't another way to teach, it is the only way to teach.
