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

    Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?

    Nancy Reyes

    Ah, sex pistols.
    Johnny Rotten abused and then killed his girlfriend, but she is forgotten, except by a mother who still mourns her troubled daughter.

    George Wallace

    Let's be fair to Johnny Rotten: whatever his other faults, he has never been accused of killing his girlfriend or anyone else.

    Sid Vicious of the Pistols, on the other hand, deserves full blame for the death of Nancy Spungen and, not long after, himself. He was also not much of a bass player.

    Thanks for the link!

    "Somehow there will always be an England, even if it has No Future." This seems to sum the place up now even more than ever. If only someone knew what it meant or what to do about it...
