Omnivorous Words

 

“My words are words of a questioning, and to indicate reality; The printed and bound book. . . .but the printer and the printing-office boy?. . .  The panorama of the sea. . . .but the sea itself?. . .The sky up there. . . .yet here or next door or across the way?   The saints and creeds and theology. . . .but the human brain, and what is called reason, and what is called love, and what is called life?”

Walt Whitman, Song of Myself, 42
