Opening lines of The New Spirit
I thought that if I could put it all down, that would be
one way. And next the thought came to me that to leave
all out would be another, and truer, way.
The flowers were.
These are examples of leaving out. But, forget as we will,
something soon comes to stand in their place. Not the
truth, perhaps, but - yourself. It is you who made this,
therefore you are true. But the truth has passed on
to divide all.
