Absurdities

“The balance-beam of Fate was bent;  
The bounds of good and ill were rent;  
Strong Hades could not keep his own,  
But all slid to confusion.”

— “Uriel,” by  
Ralph Waldo Emerson:

Oxford Book of
English Verse
, 1919,
number
 670

“All relevant objective truths are born and die as absurdities. They come into being as the monstrous claim of an inspired rebel and pass away with the eccentricity of a superstitious crank.”

— Erich Heller, The Disinherited Mind
