A Quote by David Herbert Lawrence on earth, family, nations, soul, and spirit

I am part of the sun as my eye is part of me. That I am part of the earth my feet know perfectly, and my blood is part of the sea. My soul knows that I am part of the human race, my soul is an organic part of the great human race, as my spirit is part of my nation. In my own very self, I am part of my family.

A Quote by David Herbert Lawrence on experience, fear, ideas, and world

The world fears a new experience more than it fears anything. Because a new experience displaces so many old experiences. . . . The world doesn't fear a new idea. It can pigeon-hole any idea. But it can't pigeon-hole a real new experience.

A Quote by David Herbert Lawrence on art, day, speech, and truth

Art-speech is the only truth. An artist is usually a damned liar, but his art, if it be art, will tell you the truth of his day.

Whales in mid-ocean, suspended in the waves of the sea great heaven of whales in the waters, old hierarchies. And enormous mother whales lie dreaming suckling their whale-tender young and dreaming with strange whale eyes wide open in the waters of the beginning and the end.
