O, what a noble mind is here o'erthrown! The courtier's, scholar's, soldier's, eye, tongue, sword, The expectancy and rose of the fair state, The glass of fashion and the mould of form, The observ'd of all observers -- quite, quite down! And I, of ladies most deject and wretched That suck'd the honey of his music vows, Now see that noble and most sovereign reason, Like sweet bells jangled, out of tune and harsh; That unmatch'd form and feature of blown youth Blasted with ecstasy: O, woe is me, To have seen what I have seen, see what I see! - William Shakespeare, Hamlet (Ophelia.)
What I say, what I think What I put down in ink I'm only tryin' to find a way to understand And I mean no harm I'm just searching for calm In the storm of mankind - David Gray, Let the Truth Sting.
No nobility in spirit left like a ghost that comes and leaves the listener bereft; no silence behind walls, nor peace, nor patience. No remembrance. Just the windy wails that mess the well-dressed and well-covered deceit, that is all that remains. Greet openly the acrylic sky, the water-colored water that the green trees defy. Extricate the mind from complexities that have no need for the naive, that have no need for the broken puzzle piece, that have no need. Put a muzzle around your creed, recant, recede. Gather weeds. Go. Farewell. - Leon Hathwell, Societal Ophelia.
