And so it was I entered the broken world
To trace the visionary company of love, its voice
An instant in the wind (I know not whither hurled)
But not for long to hold each desperate choice.
-------- Hart Crane
Even a wise man acts in accordance with his own nature. Beings will follow their own nature. What can restraint do?
--------------The Bhagavad Gita
The call of the wild geese brings no news.
The road's too long for my dreams to reach home.
The grief of separation is like springtime grass:
However far I wander, I find it growing still.
-------------Li Yu
