Famous quotes containing the words paradise, search and/or meat:

    Only a fool would refuse to enter a fool’s paradise—when that’s the only paradise he’ll ever have a chance to enter.
    Jessamyn West (1902–1984)

    Professor Eucalyptus said, “The search
    For reality is as momentous as
    The search for god.” It is the philosopher’s search
    For an interior made exterior
    And the poet’s search for the same exterior made

    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    We do not quite forgive a giver. The hand that feeds us is in some danger of being bitten. We can receive anything from love, for that is a way of receiving it from ourselves; but not from any one who assumes to bestow. We sometimes hate the meat which we eat, because there seems something of degrading dependence in living it.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
