Sentences/Motion etc.

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."
