A Quote by Meir Ben Isaac Neherai (c. 1050) on ink, ocean, blade of grass, parchment, trade, scribe, god, love of god, scroll, and sky

Could we with ink the ocean fill,
Were every blade of grass a quill,
Were the world of parchment made,
And every man a scribe by trade,
To write the love of God above
Would drain the ocean dry;
Nor would the scroll contain the whole,
Though stretched from sky to sky.

Meir Ben Isaac Neherai (c. 1050)

A Quote by Pablo Neruda on neglect, writing, witness, time, and ink

Someone will ask later, sometimes
searching for a name, his own or someone's else's
why I neglected his sadness or his love...

But I didn't have enough time or ink for everyone.

Or maybe it was the strain of the city, of time
the cold heart of the clocks...

Pablo Neruda (1904 - 1973)
