a fool in the forest

Epigraphs

  • A fool, a fool! I met a fool i' the
        forest,
    A motley fool; a miserable world!
    As I do live by food, I met a fool
    Who laid him down and bask'd him
        in the sun,
    And rail'd on Lady Fortune in good
        terms,
    In good set terms and yet a motley
        fool.

    As You Like It,
    Act II, Scene 7

    L'homme y passe à travers des
        forêts de symboles
    Qui l'observent avec des regards
        familiers.

    Les Fleurs du Mal,
    “Correspondances”

    [T]here is almost no subject-matter, and what little one can disentangle is foolish....
    One would call the style verbose, except that by definition verbosity is the use of words in excess of the occasion, and there seems to be no occasion.

    Yvor Winters,
    Forms of Discovery, Ch. 7

    At my company it is also taking a couple of days to get something up on the internal website to promote donations, but I am told it will be up soon. If you work for a large corporation, they will often match donations dollar for dollar. My company does, and often in these kinds of larger disasters like 9/11 and the Tsunami, they have been known to more than double the employee donations.

    Please be sure to take advantage of those kinds of plans if available to you, your dollars go twice as far in helping out.
