Hilaire Belloc Portrait.jpg  
In a word, the Barbarian is discoverable everywhere in this that he cannot make; that he can befog or destroy, but that he cannot sustain; and of every Barbarian in the decline or peril of every civilisation exactly that has been true.
We sit by and watch the Barbarian, we tolerate him; in the long stretches of peace we are not afraid.
We are tickled by his irreverence, his comic inversion of our old certitudes and our fixed creeds refreshes us: we laugh. But as we laugh we are watched by large and awful faces from beyond: and on these faces there is no smile.
~ Hilaire Belloc ~

seeming's enough for slaves of space and time
— ours is the now and here of freedom.
...
a million thousand hundred nothings seem
— we are himself's own self;his very him
...
The whole truth…
sings only — and all lovers are the song

E. E. Cummings
