If you had to choose between a quote and a picture, what would you choose? “A picture is worth a thousand words.
I think this is a great question. I like the quote because it allows us to see that the choice between words and pictures is more a question of semantics than anything else. It’s a question of whether the picture makes more sense, and if we are inclined to view that picture as a metaphor, we can make that argument more easily. In other words, we can easily make that argument without having to say, “Hey, that’s really a metaphor.
I’ve always found myself drawn to quotes that give the reader a sense of the speaker while still letting us know the speaker. In this case I think the quote “The greatest and the good shall inherit the earth” is great because it gives us the feeling of someone who’s doing what he/she said they were going to do, and this is a kind of a truth.
In the same way that we find great poetry in a quote we can also find great quotes in any other situation. I find this quote to be so good because it allows us to feel the speaker’s emotions. They are so important to us because they allow us to connect with the speaker in a way that is emotionally satisfying.
I’ve always really liked quote that was said by poet John Donne. It was a quote he said to an audience who were not his friends. I think it really resonated with me.
In this regard it’s similar to when we find a poem that makes us feel connected to the speaker. When you find a poem that speaks to your soul, it’s a great way to feel connected to a speaker, but the poet is you. The only way you can truly know who the speaker is, is if you feel the same way.
I don’t mean to belittle that poem by any means, but I don’t think it’s a good idea for anyone to just pick a random poem and say, “this makes me feel connected to him.” That’s a very lazy way to approach something like this. It’s all about reading, and understanding the poem you’re reading, and trying to absorb as much meaning as you can.
You can’t take any of this too seriously, I know, but there are two very important things to remember. First off, the poem is a poem, not a poem about a person. It’s a poem about a random guy who happened to be on Deathloop, who happens to be a genius. The poet himself may have had a very specific purpose in mind when he wrote it, but that doesn’t make everyone who reads it any less of a person.
Its impossible to be too serious. The person who wrote the poem isnt even a real person, let alone a real genius. The point is, its a poem about a random guy who happened to be on Deathloop, and that poem has a real world purpose.
