Go Deeper than Love

- D.H. Lawrence, excerpt from ‘Know Thyself, Know Thyself More Deeply’

Go deeper than love, for the soul has greater depths,
love is like the grass, but the heart is deep wild rock
molten, yet dense and permanent.

Go down to your deep old heart, and lose sight of yourself.

And lose sight of me, the me whom you turbulently loved.
Let us lose sight of ourselves, and break the mirrors.

For the fierce curve of our lives is moving again to the depths
out of sight, in the deep living heart.

Ignorancia

Por Philip Larkin 

Extraño para no conocer nada, nunca ser seguro de cuál verdad o
correcto o verdadero, pero forzado para calificar o así que a me
sentirse, o bien, se parece tan: Alguien debe saber.

Extraño para ser ignorante de las cosas de la manera trabajar: Su
habilidad en encontrar lo que él necesita, su sentido de la forma, y
la extensión puntual de la semilla, y de la buena voluntad de
cambiar; Sí, es extraña,

Incluso para usar tal conocimiento - para nuestra carne nos rodea con
sus propias decisiones - pero pasar toda nuestra vida en
imprecisiones, de que cuando comenzamos a morir no tenemos ninguna
idea porqué.
