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

    As pointed out to me on another Australian website that I frequent, there are only 13 common notes in modern Western music. There's bound to some overlap at some point.

    I find it curious that the copyright holders are only now defending their copyright. The song "Land Down Under" was certainly common enough when new. Never mind the "fair use" doctrine had the trial been here in the US. I would be willing to bet the judge would have wanted to know why they waited so long to mount a challenge. It appears to this non-lawyer nearly tantamount to abandoning the copyright.
