Tuesday Morning Wake-Up Call: A dream can weigh more than iron


And then there were the poets, those unbelievable people so different from other men, who told anyone who would listen that a wish is more important than a fortune, and that a dream can weigh more than iron or steel. What nerve they had, those poets, but how right they were! Everything, they said, comes from inside us, passes through things outside and then goes back in. And that to them is the meaning of life, feeling, understanding, love.

  6. Yes,
    What nerve they have?
    Their Spears are wicked, they travel the furthest.
    The wine they dip their spear heads in is made of our souls.
