Percy Bysshe Shelley's poem: Epipsychidion L'anima amante si slancia fuori del creato, e si crea nell' infinito un Mondo tutto per essa, diverso assai da questo oscuro e pauroso baratro. HER OWN WORDS. ["Epipsychidion" was composed at Pisa, January, February, 1821, and published without the author's name, in the following summer, by C. & J. Ollier, London. The poem was included by Mrs. The Writer of the following lines died at Florence, as he was preparing for a voyage to one of the wildest of the Sporades, which he had bought, and where he had fitted up the ruins of an old building, and where it was his hope to have realised a scheme of life, suited perhaps to that happier and better world of which he is now an inhabitant, but hardly practicable in this. The present poem appears to have been intended by the Writer as the dedication to some longer one. Voi, ch' intendendo, il terzo ciel movete, etc. [1] i.e. the nine lines which follow, beginning, 'My Song, I fear,' etc. Sweet Spirit! Poor captive bird! High, spirit-winged Heart!

Perception Quotes The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. MARCEL PROUST, "The Captive," Remembrance of Things Past What you see and hear depends a good deal on where you are standing; it also depends on what sort of person you are. C.S.

ROBERTSON DAVIES, quoted in The Wordsworth Dictionary of Quotes All civilization in a sense exists only in the mind. ALFRED L. Our vulgar perception is not concerned with other than vulgar phenomena. There is, perhaps, one universal truth about all forms of human cognition: the ability to deal with knowledge is hugely exceeded by the potential knowledge contained in man's environment. JEROME S. If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is, infinite. WILLIAM BLAKE, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell Where perception is, there also are pain and pleasure, and where these are, there, of necessity, is desire. J. C.W.

‘Where the Heart Beats,’ John Cage Biography, by Kay Larson Written by Kay Larson, who for 14 years was the art critic for New York magazine, it describes John Cage’s philosophical awakening through Zen Buddhism, which changed not only the sort of music he composed but, seemingly, everything he did and said. Cage’s music and his interactions have been documented in many other books, but what makes “Where the Heart Beats” different is that it centers first on the ideas behind the work: why he sought them, when he came upon them, and where and how he used them. Only secondarily is it about his notated and copyrighted scores, and Cage’s place within the history of music (if indeed that is the place he ought to occupy). For more than 40 years — from the time of his 1951 talks at the Club, a loft space on East Eighth Street in Manhattan opened by the sculptor Philip Pavia, until his death in 1992 — Cage often found himself around devoted scribes and live microphones.
