This poet said some very thought provoking things.. and made me wonder, who is really the crazy one here?
I don't like this. I barely consider it worthwhile. Poetry is not about pretty well put words alone, its also about the content.

Why is he never discussed here? He's pretty good, senpai.
Is this book good?
Is it possible to major in literature even when English is your second language?
My name is Ishmael.
A shooting goes through the sky! There have been rockets before, but noone remembers them now. It is late. The lockdown is still attempted but it's all in vain. There is no light inside the bus. No lights anywhere. Above him lift burgers old as a string bean, and light somewhere far above to let the glass of night through. But it's day. He is afraid of the way the rocket will fall. The fall of a silver mansion. But coming down in complete silence without any sound. Only loud, opaque, smashing.

Its been like this for years. Its the main reason i never finished one work. If i continue on one thing for to long it just gets tedious and becomes a job. thats why i like doing multiple projects at once. But its just hard af to balance the time.
Write what's on your mind.
>One must wonder, how many thoughts does a man keep to himself for fear of society's reproach? How open to one another can we really be?
Se rendre compte de l’horreur du flou du langage que nous employons tout les jours et qui est souvent notre seul outil. Du jeu qu’il y a entre chaque maillon de la chaîne de communication, réaliser les implications d’une telle imperfection : avoir peur. C’est le premier pas vers le silence.
daily reminder that Dr. Seuss is the greatest poet of the 20th century

It's interesting that Hume shows there is no logical proofs for causation, but isn't it pretty logical to accept causation purely because it is the theory which best explains and predicts? Moreover, even Hume's argument about causation hardly impacts Leibniz's argument that everything which exists, has an explanation.

That is exactly what he says you idiot. Read Hume before talking about him.
1) Top or bottom (do you keep your books with or without the dust jackets)?
2) Have you ever hesitated or refrained from buying a book with an ugly cover?
3) What's the most aesthetic/fitting book cover you own, and what's the worst/most ill-matched?
How was this man so amazing at poetry?
Is there an adjective in any language for a person that deserves help not because they inspire you pity but because of their human quality?
Please help me; my other hobbies (video games and cinema) are failing me so I'm returning to literature my one true love.
I've read many of the essentials, a lot of Russian stuff, and anything I could get my hands on with a vaguely Philosophical bent (Camus and shit). I recently discovered Murakami: I think he's fantastic but I'm sure he's considered pleb here.
If anyone could take the time to give a recommendation or two I would really appreciate it. Done wasting my time on vidya.
