The Greatest Poetry

“In the power and splendor of the universe, inspiration waits for the millions to come. Man has only to strive for it. Poems greater than the Iliad, plays greater than Macbeth, stories more engaging than Don Quixote await their seeker and finder.” 

~ John Masefield (born June 1, 1878)

  1. The god of the universe is so much greater than the anthropomorphic God of the Bible.

  2. I've always thought that God didn't create man in His image so much as man created God in his. And left women out of the meeting where it was done.
