How does it feel to think?
Like making a picture of the facts.
How do we think of feelings?
By making pictures of the act.

How a thought

the image—
how feelings
become thoughts.

Inquiring minds,
governed hearts.

How people
imagine things.

How does the soul work?
It abides in the body.

To see
what the facts are


who the acts become
in deed.

Reason tends
to the stillness
of the mind.

Passion stirs
in the motion
of the heart.

your reasons

Under an obligation
your passions

Thursday, April 19, 2018

Reason is
to argument

as passion
to obligation,

as that
which shines

to that
which binds.
