Lines, Curves

A  L  O  H  A !

Men

are governed by lines

of intellect - 

women

by curves

of emotion." 


James Joyce
Let's argue, er, discuss this one in comments :-)









" To be amused by what you read-

-that is the great spring

 of happy quotations."

        C. E. Montague







" I finally figured out

 the only reason

 to be alive

 is to enjoy it. "

Rita Mae Brown





I love to wear

a glove.

Not really,
but I like the 
feel-y

of the words,
like curds -

so satisfying,
deep self flying

in that Realm
at the helm

of this craft
of which I'm
captain-of-the
-infinite-sea
(fore and aft)

this jolly vessel
called "ME."

Wonderful to see 

Y O U!

                         
Thanks, cloudia

There are no straight lines in nature, so I'm for the curves. Sorry!

Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this website. It's simple,
yet effective. A lot of times it's very hard to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and appearance. I must say that you've done a superb job
with this. Additionally, the blog loads extremely fast for me on
Firefox. Outstanding Blog!

Oh I beg to differ...curves and intellect make a wonderful twosome, add a sense of humour and you have a blissful menage a trois :)

i love that first quote! :)

I think that both genders have lines and curves... Women do have amazing intellects and men have pretty strong emotions. I like the quote about enjoying life; that's the really important thing, and you gotta enjoy its lines and curves with your lines and curves ;)

Lines of intellect and Curves of emotion? What a clever play of words!! But I'm not sure I agree! Haha!

Hi, jolly vessel, happy sailing!

I’m not sure I agree with Joyce, I’m not even sure that lines cannot be curves.

apparently James Joyce wasn't all that bright.

Betty Manousos said...

Robert Geiss said...

And I thought, that curves were lines too.

Please have a good Wednesday you all.

Ah the first quote does follow my mother's idea that a man's emotions are like a water faucet. They turn them on, and turn them off! It's as simple as that! I also am so happy to be alive!

SandyCarlson said...

Oh, that Joyce! Let's start with the basic fact that he was perpetually horny and looking for curves!

I like Rita Mae Brown's books and I love her quote.

Intellect versus emotion Cloudia - now that's a thorny problem.
