  1. And when we take a moment to listen:

“we hear those primal warblings, and attempt to write them down”

teacher

For:

“words are also actions, and actions…a kind of words”

  1. “every word was once a poem”

teacher

“each word was at first a stroke of genius”

Teaching

“Because for the moment it symbolized the world to the first speaker and hearer”

teacher/student

  1. “Every new relation is a new word”

teacher student=education

  1. It is a belief that:

“Man is only half himself, the other half is his expression”

but

“All things are one”

and

“By God, it is in me, and must go forth of me”

  1. Now I stand here, balked and dumb, stuttering and stammering, hissed and hooted.

I stand and I strive, until at last, rage draws out out of me that dream-power:

Art
