"When you’re three, you don’t draw what you see—you draw upon your imagination. Nobody tells you to stop putting wings on people, unless you have a most unfortunate preschool teacher. You are intoxicated by your own magic."
- Kirsten Hubbard, Wanderlove (via psych-facts)
"But there is a third mode of trancendence: in it language simply ceases, and the motion of spirit gives no further outward manifestation of its being. The poet enters into silence. Here the word borders not on radiance or music, but on night."
- George Steiner, from the essay “Silence and the Poet,” in Language and Silence: Essays on Language, Literature, and the Inhuman (Atheneum, 1967)
