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

    George, As an honorary gumbah of mine from way back, you are exempted from the Avoid April Foolery Policy I announced yesterday. Good luck.

    I wanted, as a Chronic Fatigue Syndrome patient, to point out one very important reason why I rejected Ed's request that I switch to the April 3rd edition of Blawg Review, from my scheduled April 10th gig: We lose an hour of sleep on Sunday night. Glad it's you and not me trying to meet that deadline.

    Thank you! I needed these laughs!
