Who Wrote?

1. "Words move, music moves Only in time; but that which is only living Can only die. Words, after speech, reach Into the silence. Only by the form, the pattern, Can words or music reach The stillness, as a Chinese jar still Moves perpetually in its stillness."

2. "Certainly Adam in Paradise had not more sweet and curious apprehension of the world than I when I was a child...

All appeared new and strange at first, inexpressibly rare and delightful and beautiful.I was a little stranger, which at my entrance into the world was saluted and surrounded with innumerable joys...

The dust and stones of the street were as precious as gold; the gates were at first the end of the world."

3. "It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it."
