Poems About Meaning Of Life Quotes

You wouldnt think the touch of someones hand could blow your mind. Its nothing, right? People dont right songs and poems about holding hands - they write them about kisses and sex and eternal love. I mean, when youre a little kid you hold hands with your parents to cross the street. Whos going to write an ode to that? We were alone in the dark, even though the enormous theater was filled with probably a thousand people. We were a tiny island in a sea of other people who didnt matter, who had no meaning, who were so stupid, so oblivious, so stuck in their own boring lives that they didnt even notice the huge, momentous, life-shattering event that was taking place right there in row L, between seats 102 and 104. Derek Edwards was holding my hand.
— Claire LaZebnik —

Reading a poem in translation," wrote Bialek, "is like kissing a woman through a veil"; and reading Greek poems, with a mixture of katharevousa and the demotic, is like kissing two women. Translation is a kind of transubstantiation; one poem becomes another. You choose your philosophy of translation just as you choose how to live: the free adaptation that sacrifices detail to meaning, the strict crib that sacrifices meaning to exactitude. The poet moves from life to language, the translator moves from language to life; both like the immigrant, try to identify the invisible, what's between the lines, the mysterious implications.
