Fair and Unfair (Francis)

The beautiful is fair.  The just is fair.
Yet one is commonplace and one is rare,
One everywhere, one scarcely anywhere.

So fair unfair a world.  Had we the wit
To use the surplus for the deficit,
We'd make a fairer fairer world of it.

Robert Francis

When what is done is done

When what is done is done, it must be justified, its necessity and appropriateness quickly and firmly established so that it never need be (ideally, never can be) considered, much less questioned, again. Fortunately, the mind, thus called upon, rarely balks and almost never fails to settle the matter in the manner desired.

Our desires (Proust)

Our desires interweave with each other; and in the confusion of existence, it is seldom that a joy is promptly paired with the desire that longed for it.

My view

If you feel there are things your eyes must not see, then close them, fool. But never undertake to impede my view.

The prism

Dogma ever will schism.
Truth survives the prism.

Understanding

Understanding brings us closer,
which is why it is often rejected
by those more comfortable at a remove.

The universe

Is the universe large enough
that even the truth can get lost in it?
