What is a television apparatus to man, who has only to shut his eyes to see the most inaccessible regions of the seen and the never seen, who has only to imagine in order to pierce through walls and cause all the planetary Baghdads of his dreams to rise from the dust.
Why does the eye see a thing more clearly in dreams than the imagination when awake?

My death, taking the light from my eyes, gives back to the day the purity which they soiled.
Another side to me is this very sexual being. When I look back on my life, it's always been there. It's been there since I was 10 years old, having the imagination that I had.

We can also cut by heat - heat punch. And we also can cut by cold - extreme cold. When you cut with heat, it makes a mark. With cold, no mark. It depends on the fabric.
The very gradual character of the changes of the body also contributes to the stability of the ego, but in a much less degree than people imagine.
Cowardice, as distinguished from panic, is almost always simply a lack of ability to suspend the functioning of the imagination.
For women's tears are but the sweat of eyes.
I am Patrick, a sinner, most uncultivated and least of all the faithful and despised in the eyes of many.
I am afraid that our eyes are bigger than our stomachs, and that we have more curiosity than understanding. We grasp at everything, but catch nothing except wind.
