According to Pablo Neruda, “We are made of earth and rain”.
At night I dream that you and I are two plants
that grew together, roots entwined,
and that you know the earth and the rain like my mouth,
since we are made of earth and rain.
Pablo Neruda, Regalo De Un Poeta, Gift Of A Poet
And what’s romance? Usually, a nice little tale where you have everything As You Like It, where rain never wets your jacket and gnats never bite your nose and it’s always daisy-time. David Herbert Lawrence
It was a rainy night. It was the myth of a rainy night. Jack Kerouac, On the Road
We are made of earth and rain
All rejection and negation indicates a deficiency in fertility: fundamentally, if only we were good plowland we would allow nothing to go unused, and in every thing, event, and person we would welcome manure, rain, or sunshine. Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900), German philosopher, classical scholar, critic of culture.
