If you can’t beat ’em, join ‘em

To enlarge or illustrate this power and effect of love is to set a candle in the sun.

- Robert Burton (1577–1640)

If you can’t beat ’em, join ‘em

Inspired by Robert Burton (1577–1640)’s quote, “To enlarge or illustrate this power and effect of love is to set a candle in the sun”. The titled responsion adds a little light to that which sustains all life.

The beauty of this quote from Robert Burton is the meaning of adding a candle (love ) to the sun (greater love). On one hand, the it may seam insignificant, however on second thought it’s part of something bigger and since how love is universally accepted as a an ideal, the sun is our absolute, coupling the two eliminates all applied meaning of insignificance to the allusion. The, “If you can’t beat ’em, join ‘em” responsion is an instruction towards compliance and the “light” that everyone knows our only true life force.

Platonic in forme

Inspired by Lord Byron (1788–1824)’s quote, “Be thou the rainbow in the storms of life. The evening beam that smiles the clouds away, and tints tomorrow with prophetic ray.”. The titled responsion is a shot out to my man Plato, not that he is listening. Do you see what it transcendence means?

Alluding to the ideal, the perfect storm is brewing in a anthropomorphic master. Incipit to the opening capital, the Polis is the ideal community and the rising sun is Hellenic. Compare and contrast the writings and thoughts of Lord Byron with the Hegemony from Ancient Greece and the peripatetic philosophers like yours truly!

Heading Towards Vergina and the Hellenic

Inspired by Walt Whitman (1819–1892)’s quote, “Keep your face always toward the sunshine — and shadows will fall behind you”. The titled responsion is Hellenic in origin.

Head on and Hellenic in origin the shadows of this illuminated allusion is a story worth learning about. Failures of interpretation and the transmission of wisdom determine the dogma that dictates the cannon fodder that will soon follow. Less than ideal, this approach is often the reality that history reveals.
