    INFP - The Idealists

    "...is that when you are young you may have a great dream or ambition, which appears to you like a story--the story of your future. When you grow older you understand that it is not just difficult to achieve but that it is full of risk and pain that you knew nothing of as a child"

    INFP - The Idealists

    “Peril, loneliness, an uncertain future, are not oppressive evils, so long as the frame is healthy and the faculties are employed; so long, especially, as Liberty lends us her wings, and Hope guides us by her star.”
    Villette, Charlotte Bronte

    This probably belongs in another thread, since this thread seems for prose..but I have been reading from a book of poetry:

    When you are old and gray and full of sleep,
    And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
    And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
    Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;

    How many loved your moments of glad grace,
    And loved your beauty with love false or true,
    But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
    And loved the sorrows of your changing face;

    And bending down beside the glowing bars,
    Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled
    And paced upon the mountains overhead
    And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.

    W.B Yeats





    Also this poem...I think it's an innuendo for foreplay and sex (or else I have a dirty mind) :p It wasn't particularly impacting, except that I want to explore that interpretation and what he's doing with language and possible double meaning. But it's not my favorite and I find it a little unsettling (reminds me a little of really archaic gender roles and the Romance of the Rose, but as I said---I think it's interesting to consider)

    From "In a Gondola"

    The moth's kiss, first!
    Kiss me as if you made me believe
    You were not sure, this eve,
    How my face, your flower, had pursed
    Its petals up; so, here and there
    You brush it, till I grow aware
    Who wants me, and wide ope I burst.

    The bee's kiss, now!
    Kiss me as if you enter'd gay
    My heart at some noonday,
    A bud that dares not disallow
    The claim, so all is render'd up,
    And passively its shatter'd cup
    Over your head to sleep I bow.

    Robert Browning

    i like this one , "" Happiness among Intelligent people is the rarest thing i have ever seen"" - ernest hemingway .
    and this one , ""Never theorize before u have data , because invariably , u would end up twisting facts to suit up theories instead of theories to , suit facts "" - guess who
