A  L  O  H  A !
 makes the very least 
to be of more value 
than the most 
talented hypocrite."
                                             CHARLES SPURGEON

can be analyzed, 
merely adored. "
                            Oscar Wilde

Sounds right to me!

"As I get older,
 I realize that
 the thing I value
 the most is 
                               Alice Walker

"Most of the change 
we think we see 
in life is due 
to truths being 
in and out
 of favor."  
         Robert Frost 
" Truth is eternal,
Knowledge is changeable. 
It is disastrous 
to confuse them. "
 Madeleine L'Engle

I have to answer Frost and L'Englw with Sandburg

Simply because Frost and Sandburg did not care for each other. Frost though Sandburg an ass and Sandburg (my hero) though Frost anal.


MY head knocks against the stars.
My feet are on the hilltops.
My finger-tips are in the valleys and shores of
universal life.
Down in the sounding foam of primal things I
reach my hands and play with pebbles of
I have been to hell and back many times.
I know all about heaven, for I have talked with God.
I dabble in the blood and guts of the terrible.
I know the passionate seizure of beauty
And the marvelous rebellion of man at all signs
reading "Keep Off."

My name is Truth and I am the most elusive captive
in the universe.

Carl Sandburg

Oh that Oscar Wilde, you've got to love him :)

Teresa said...

Wow! I like the question you leave us about truth and knowledge. I also liked the quote about sincerity. Not sure about Oscar Wilde... putting women on a pedestal has always been a way of marginalizing them. How can they make meaningful contributions to society in a male world when they are supposed to just be looking lovely and receiving adoration?

I'm not quite sure I understand L'Engle's quote.

Am I the only one who sees a bird shaped cloud(ia) in that last image? It puts me in mind of a golden roardrunner tearing off to the right.

A great post, Cloudia!

Someone I once worked with insisted that 'the secret to success is sincerity. Once you can fake that you have it made...'
Sadly she was (on some levels) considered successful. Not by me.

Avast, there be spammers here, ye maties....

That last photo's stunning. And I must agree with Wilde and Frost.

Small Kucing said...

Sincerity is not easy to find nowadays. Everyone seems to be sporting the line "There is no free lunch " :(

Cloudia said...

Bird shaped cloud! YES! Like a road runner. Thanks friends!
