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

    ah lunacy, the original foolishness

    Vickie Pynchon

    I was so besotted by the moon that my proposal of marriage was misdirected to the previous post. . . . (shyly moving her toe in the sand) . . . "the unworthy Negotiation Law blog would like to take the Fool's hand in marriage!" WHAT? No marriage equality for digital beings? To the ramparts!

    Ms. Vickie, if you keep goin' on like that you're gonna turn my head.

    As the newsreel narrators always used to say about one or more of the Beatles (Paul, mostly): "Sorry, girls, he's taken."

    A lovely thought, though. My thanks.

    This Blawg review and your #205 DOES THE BUSINESS... I can give no higher praise.... loved both. Excellent

    And thanks for mention on a serious issue. I don't often do serious on my blog but when I do, I usually mean it!

    A really good BR and Appendix.
