Quotable | Attention

open quoteThe moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.
-- Henry Miller, American author (1891–1980). Of note: Miller’s first two works, Tropic of Cancer (Paris, 1934) and Tropic of Capricorn (Paris, 1939), were denied publication in the U.S. until the early 1960s because of "alleged obscenity." Apparently, some folks were focusing too much attention to some of Miller's confessional material. So we see that the States' puritanical and "holier than thou" campaigns keep coming around. Ah, the cycles of inanity.
