The Purpose – Sat Oct 24 17:29:50 2009

October 26, 2009

the purpose of the very commonplace ·
in some perspectives · will become extinct ·
the body of a stream · a thimble · some
were covered with a girdle round the head ·
the sea · desire · or the theory of
the water · which upsets the world · a thing
according to the market · complex · some
were treated with a theory of the head ·

the judgment · at the present time a thing
resides in its advances · soon the eye
becomes accustomed to the surface of
the water · and the merit of events
in our systems of desire · to
the ocean · is a small canoe · in which
the eye becomes accustomed to regard
the future as determined · little more ·

the sun · a very low opinion of
the moon · the climate · and a quarter of
a meal · the things obey the theory of
the world in layers on the head · the judge
continued to deny a substance or
foundation · but pretended to expect ·
the boats · the waves · the contemplation of
a fully purified ideal in man ·
