I am I

This is what I believe:
That I am I.
That my soul is a dark forest.
That my known self will never be more than a little clearing in the forest.
That gods, strange gods, come forth from the forest into the clearing of my known self, and then go back.
That I must have the courage to let them come and go.
That I will never let mankind put anything over me, but that I will try always to recognize and submit to the gods in me
and the gods in other men and women.

- - D.H. Lawrence

That D.H. is so quotable: "I can't bear art that you can walk round and admire. A book should be either a bandit or a rebel or a man in the crowd."
