Selected Quotes of Ernest Fenolossa:
"The eye sees noun and verb as one: things in motion, motion in things."
"Motion leaks everywhere, like electricity from an exposed wire . . . there could be no complete sentence . . . save one which it would take all time to pronounce."
"Thought deals with no bloodless concepts but watches things move under its microscope."
"Metaphor was piled upon metaphor in quasi-geological strata."
"poetry agrees with science and not with logic."
