Five aphorisms.


I mean six.

Throwing two more in here:

  1. The most difficult thing to bear upon the Tantalus’s wheel of mediocrity is a glimmer of happiness.

  2. Like certain creatures of the sea, who cannot survive at a certain depth without being crushed, so the poet must perish at that point his desire and mere aestheticism crosses over into real pleasure.

I only wish there was an ‘emoitcon’ that expressed one crapping his pants.

Is that a compliment or what?
