Warrior Poet Mental Yoga 84

Willy:     That’s just what I mean, Bernard can get the best marks in school, y’understand, but when he gets out in the business world, y’understand, you are going to be five times ahead of him. That’s why I thank Almighty God you’re both built like Adonises. Because the man who makes an appearance in the business world, the man who creates personal interest, is the man who gets ahead. Be liked and you will never want. You take me, for instance. I never have to wait in line to see a buyer. “Willy Loman is here!” That’s all they have to know, and I go right through.

Biff:       Did you knock them dead, Pop?

Willy:     Knocked ’em cold in Providence, slaughtered ’em in Boston.

Love vs Sex 170

The Muse and Constant of Jody

Oh muse,

you have apparently enchanted me,

and I,

drunk on such enchantment,

find myself forgetting not to live and forgetting not to love,

as it should be…

as I believe It should be for us all.

I thought of you before I was born

and I will think of you for all of eternity after I have passed from this world.

My thoughts

and

the core essence of my spirit behind them

are

a constant in all realms and states of existence.

You are a constant

in my being

and I am a constant

in yours…

regardless of our transient states.

We are one,

we have always been one,

but we became two to explore all of creation;

to learn, to grow, to wander, to see, and to appreciate all else as itself,

so that we may truly appreciate in all of its graceful exquisiteness our own uniqueness,

and decide,

against all of the obstacles of chaos

and

the proffered dreams and desires of others,

that we want to return

to one another,

we,

together,

want to return to

our sublime unity of a transcending

one.
