Personal Notes

The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ, Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line, Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.

Alike for those who for TO-DAY prepare, And those that after a TO-MORROW stare, A Muezzin from the Tower of Darkness cries "Fools! your reward is neither Here nor There."

And that inverted Bowl we call The Sky, Whereunder crawling coop't we live and die, Lift not thy hands to It for help-for It Rolls impotently on as Thou or I.

We live in Hope and Die in Despair. / Don't mistake me for someone who gives a DAMN.

For in much wisdom is much grief; and he who increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow. / Old age and treachery, will overcome youth and skill.


The Bible, the book of the masses, in the supreme anti-intellectual book. The Bible begins with curses against Adam for seeking knowledge and it ends with populist prophets denouncing the culture of the cities.

Christianity was resisted by the ancient philosophers, who regarded it as an aberration of the lower classes; it spread from below upwards.

Marxism, on the contrary, has been carried by the intellectuals to the proletatians and peasants.

Marxism called upon human beings for a supreme deed of free will, that of intervening in their history with a revolutionary act and creating their own society.
