Words are but wind; and learning is nothing but words; ergo, learning is nothing but wind.
Jonathan Swift

These two are not two Love has made them one Amo Ergo Sum! And by its mystery Each is no less but more.
Benjamin Britten

First of all, there was a volcano of words, an eruption of words that Shakespeare had never used before that had never been used in the English language before. It's astonishing. It pours out of him.
Stephen Greenblatt

The eruption of lived pleasure is such that in losing myself I find myself; forgetting that I exist, I realize myself.
Raoul Vaneigem

Erica Jong

Provocative subjects of your quotes, Don.
Lol, at Erica Jong's quote, I was around when she came on the scene and made a splash.
Jonathan Swift, yes, in a way he is correct. In one ear and out the other.
And Stephen Greenblatt's comment, it is true to this day,
I'm sitting here having fun thinking about your quotes.
