QuotationThe best of Pound is in Hugh Selwyn Mauberley... Sometimes as much like Ogden Nash as he is like Auden. Pound found marvellous words everywhere. One feels that the most fruitful moments in the life of Julien Green are those which he spent looking out of his window, not thinking anything, just looking at the buildings and the trees of Paris.
Quotation SourceA Search for Solitude: Pursuing the Monk's True Life. The Journals of Thomas Merton, Volume 3, 1952-1960.; Edited by Lawrence S. Cunningham. / San Francisco : Harper Collins. 1996, p. 110-11
