Comment of the Week

“the Sunday comment,
‘Too often, people are too hard on themselves for having these “contradictory” preferences or beliefs. As if they’re upsetting the fabric of reality or something. That’s not how this works. We can be contradictory. We are contradictory. Those contradictions don’t all have to be resolved. They can just be.’

reminds me of Walt Whitman,
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.)

and William Empson,
life involves maintaining oneself between contradictions that can’t be solved by analysis.

and Keats’ idea of negative capability, that a poet must be “capable of being in uncertainties, Mysteries, doubts, without any irritable reaching after fact and reason.

It’s taken me decades of living to give up my hope of a rational world ?
and maintain myself in contradictions..”

-Agreed, Doug.
