    Think of a number, an odd number is best, since that is truth itself, three in one or such. All that's needed to touch the Absolute is an arbitrary rule, like a line of verse. - The key, pg. 14 * * * Word reverberating over the abyss before ever the light from darkness was severed, before there was mind to instruct horizons and father forth the colours of earth and sky in the complexities of dying. Listen! Nothing is lost, or everything; the sound is gone out into the farthest galaxies though sometimes I hea Think of a number, an odd number is best, since that is truth itself, three in one or such. All that's needed to touch the Absolute is an arbitrary rule, like a line of verse. - The key, pg. 14 * * * Word reverberating over the abyss before ever the light from darkness was severed, before there was mind to instruct horizons and father forth the colours of earth and sky in the complexities of dying. Listen! Nothing is lost, or everything; the sound is gone out into the farthest galaxies though sometimes I hear a rumour in my blood like the intricate frenzy of a city. - The big bang, pg. 27 * * * The hour postponed, the angel takes a raincheck and next time will be worse than you imagined, Not Bach's sweet hour with heavenly honey blessed, not music's empire, nor harmony of the spheres, but the last crunch of an inner universe, ruin of time-space as the mirror splinters. And of course the grave, where entropy's still law, making a kind of dark music of its own, and still the bright galaxies go blazing on while leonids fall like the tears of heaven. - The hour postponed, pg. 58 * * * Pity the invisible majority, the hidden hands, the faceless bureaucracies, the moral multitudes, voices never heard, smiles and faces you meet and quickly forget. Like air, our element, they are everywhere, colourless, odourless, even transparent. Pity them? Yes, because everywhere's nowhere; and everyman is no one anyone knows. - The invisibles, pg. 72 * * * No, you never deceived me; you said nothing and did not look at me as you came to bed. Later, a child leaving a birthday party, you murmured Thank you I had a lovely time. The room you left that morning is still empty. - Parting, pg. 105
