e.e. cummings (1958)

 

The thing I really love about his poems is the mystery leading up to the understanding. At first, nothing makes sense. It’s hell and you don’t want to care any more, but part of you still wants to know what it’s all about. Then, all of a sudden, you get it. Everything makes sense and it’s really wonderful and you can appreciate it all the better from that moment on. Well, ideally.

"Somewhere man must know that self-perception is the most frightening of all human observations. He must know that when a man faces himself, he is looking into an abyss."
