Enchantment

"The Now, that indivisible point which studs the length of infinite line

Whose ends are nowhere, is thine all, the puny all thou callest thine."

– Richard Francis Burton, in "The Kasîdah of Hâjî Abdû El-Yezdî" (1870), IX

 

"Wynken, Blynken and Nod one night

Sailed off in a wooden shoe—

Sailed on a river of crystal light

Into a sea of dew."

– Eugene Field, "Wynken, Blynken and Nod".

 

"I am a ridiculous person. Now they call me a madman. That would be a promotion if it were not that I remain as ridiculous in their eyes as before. But now I do not resent it, they are all dear to me now, even when they laugh at me — and, indeed, it is just then that they are particularly dear to me."

– Fyodor Dostoevsky, in "The Dream of a Ridiculous Man" (1877).
