Well then; I now do plainly see This busy world and I shall ne'er agree; The very honey of all earthly joy Does of all meats the soonest cloy, And they (methinks) deserve my pity, Who for it can endure the stings, The crowd, and buzz and murmurings, Of this great hive, the city.
Let but thy wicked men from out thee go,
And all the fools that crowd thee so,
Even thou, who dost thy millions boast,
A village less than Islington wilt grow,
A solitude almost.
The crowd, and buzz, and murmurings
Of this great hive, the city.
Quote of the day
Without struggle, no progress and no result. Every breaking of habit produces a change in the machine.
G. I. Gurdjieff
July 28, 1667
