Quote of the day: EXISTENCE

May 11, 2023


Everything except language
knows the meaning of existence.
Trees, planets, rivers, time
know nothing else. They express it
moment by moment as the universe.

Even this fool of a body
lives it in part, and would
have full dignity within it
but for the ignorant freedom
of my talking mind.

–Les Murray, “The Meaning of Existence”
