Let us award a just, a brilliant homage to those rare men whom nature has endowed with the precious privilege of arranging a thousand isolated facts, of making seductive theories spring from them; but let us not forget to state, that the scythe of the reaper had cut the stalks before one had thought of uniting them into sheaves!
In 1939 I wrote my first article ("Intime banaliteter" [Intimate banalities] in the journal Helhesten ) in which I expressed my love for sofa painting, and for the last twenty years I have been preoccupied with the idea of rendering Homage to it. Thus I act with full responsibility and after extensive reflection. Only my current situation has enabled me to accomplish the expensive task of demonstrating that the preferred sustenance of painting is painting.asger jorn

But a meek humble Man of modest Sense, Who, Preaching Peace, does practice Continence; Whose pious life’s a proof he does believe, Mysterious Truths, which no Man can conceive.

If such there are, yet grant me This at least, Man differs more from Man, than Man from Beast.wilmot, john, 2nd earl of rochester
"God save King Robert! then, say I," vociferated Alan, eagerly grasping the knight's hand. "Sit, sit, Sir Knight; and for the love of heaven, speak more of this most wondrous tale.

How may we reconcile these contradictions?"grace aguilar

Adoration, which is known as latria , in classical theology , is the worship and Homage that is rightly offered to God alone. It is the manifestation of submission and acknowledgement of dependence appropriately shown towards the excellence of an uncreated divine person and to his absolue Lordship.

He who pays Homage to those who are worthy of Homage, be they the Enlightened Ones or Their Disciples those who have overcome the host of evil and crossed beyond the stream of sorrow he who pays Homage to the Fearless and Peaceful Ones, his merit cannot be measured by any. (Verse 195-196)
