To Quote Is to Betray

How could it be said, that "To Quote Is to Betray."

To repeat,
To repeat,
To repeat,
the exact words,
or, even,
some facsimile thereof--

Could betray one whose
gestures, words, time, sweat
pointed to one

THING

A Point Encased

https://www.theparisreview.org/blog/2018/04/09/the-strange-magic-of-libraries/

This link,  don't click it, just look at the topic.  A point Jan made once, was that you could only talk about something (anything) when it is over.

Pindicular

Pindicular: balanced on the logically, necessarily, non-existent, point of a pin.

Those Olympic athletes

Gosh, just amazing feats. You wonder if such is possible even, until you see it.  Like spinning in the air during a jump. Internal attention, maintaining it, perhaps such invisible feats, might be even MORE difficult. And a difference between athletic stars and the ambitions of even fewer folks, is that if acclaim is an issue, for the latter, that itself is a form of spin out.

Where You Draw The Line

IF
you are going to take seriously man's conclusions about our world, about history, take seriously the attempts to articulate existence bounded, like a cross, with the two poles of world and society, of man and god, then this is quite a lovely summary--

A takedown of Roger Scruton, lining up C. S. Lewis and Rene Guenon, drawing Plato back into the discussion, are all contained gracefully in the few paragraphs at this link. It is written by someone named Richard Cocks. The fun, for someone who has worked with Jan Cox, is why Jan viewed such attempts as useless to one concerned with TKS-- This Kind of Stuff.

One direction the answer might lie, is drawing a line between the unsayable and else. And keeping the line vivid. A mere thought....I am not answering the question we started with.

March 7, 2018, addendum to above note (published on February 12, 2018). A direct quote from a transcription of Jan talking:

"As long as you continue to listen to your voices at Line level, as long as you continue to try and mesh This with anything (no matter how mystical sounding) you already believe, you engage in absolute folly."
