Well said Walt...

"When I heard the learn'd astronomer,

When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns

before me,

When I was shown the charts and

diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them,

When I sitting heard the astronomer where he lectured

with much applause in the lecture room,

How soon unaccountable I became tired and sick,

Till rising and gliding out I wander'd off by myself,

In the mystical moist night air, and from time to

time,

Look'd up in perfect silence at the stars."


~Walt Whitman
