THOREAU IN LOVE!!!

Thoreau wrote about love in general and one relationship in particular in his Journal during 1839-1840 when he was quite smitten with Ellen Sewall; his brother John was also in love with her. Prior to meeting Sewall in July 1839, he wrote a short poem about love which he included in his Journal entry for January 20, 1839 (Journal 1: 1837-1844, ed. Elizabeth Hall Witherell et al. [Princeton: Princeton University Press], 66). He met her on July 20, 1839, and "By July 25 he was beyond poetry" (Walter Harding, The Days of Henry Thoreau, 95). On that day he wrote in his Journal, "There is no remedy for love but to love more" (Journal 1, 81). Early in November of 1840, after John had proposed to Ellen and been rejected, Thoreau wrote her a letter in which he proposed. The letter no longer survives, but it is likely that his November 1, 1840, Journal entry was related to that letter. It reads:

I thought that the sun of our love
should have risen as noiselessly
as the sun out of the sea,
and we sailors have found ourselves
steering between the tropics
as if the broad day had lasted forever.
You know how the sun comes up from the sea
when you stand on the cliff, and does'nt startle you,
but every thing, and you too are helping it. (Journal 1, 193).

A quantifier is a word or phrase used to talk about quantities, amounts or degree.

I belong to those mothers who like their children being small. But the way Agatha Christie sees and describes it is also very attractive. It's true that they blossom. I like the idea of the "gate". You are some sort of guide and nothing more, but also nothing less.

Reading is a highlight. Teaching someone a highlight is a good thing, right?
