Quote by John Barlas
Loved once for ever loved: how surely sounds This gospel to me since I learned to list Truth from thy lips, mine own evangelist. What thought presumes to set now any bounds To Love whose being informs us and surrounds?
This quote expresses the belief in the eternal and boundless nature of love. The speaker asserts that since learning the truth about love from their beloved, it has become a gospel to them. They question any notion that can limit or confine love, viewing it as something that encompasses and permeates everything. It emphasizes the idea that love is a fundamental force that informs and connects us, resisting any attempt to establish boundaries.
From up high where I was, you could shout anything you liked at them. I tried. They made me sick, the whole lot of them. I hadn't the nerve to tell them so in the daytime, to their face, but up there it was safe. Help! Help! I shouted, just to see if it would have any effect on them. None whatsoever. Those people were pushing life and night and day in front of them. Life hides everything from people. Their own noise prevents them from hearing anything else. They couldn't care less. The bigger and taller the city, the less they care. Take it from me. I've tried. It's a waste of time.
