An inspirational quote:
"What need has a free spirit for a rock on which to stand when it has wings with which to fly?"
I'm a fan of the whole "free spirit"-thing, particularly in its Nietzschean form, but it seems to me that one's wings get tired at some point.
And then it would be nice to have a safe place to land.
A curious thing
about the ontological problem
is its simplicity.
It can be put
'What is there?'
It can be answered,
in a word--
and everyone will accept
-WVO Quine, "On What There Is"
I didn't come up with the idea of "Quine as Poet," but I like the idea; and I like Quine better than Weiderkehr in any case.
I'm even more pleased to learn that Quine is a noun.
