A Quote by Adam Nicolson on ignorance and poetry

The field is a halfway house, halfway between the detail of those intimately known places and the ignorance of a landscape view. . . . The essence of a field is that the cultural accommodates the natural there. The human being makes room for and makes use of those organisms that are not him. In that way the field is a poem to symbiosis, and a human contract with the natural.

A Quote by A. Ray Olpin on confession, knowledge, learning, mind, and poetry

No matter how much we learn, there is always more knowledge to be gained. In this connection I am reminded of a short poem that has been in my mind over the years. It reads as follow: I used to think I knew I knew. But now I must confess. The more I know I know I know I know I know the less.
