Weekly Walt Whitman

Words to live by from Uncle Walt: (I think it is from the preface to Leaves of Grass, but I'll have to verify that...I found it on a greeting card....go figure?)

"dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body...."
