    “Baldwin writes:

    Sentimentality, the ostentatious parading of excessive and spurious emotion, is the mark of dishonesty, the inability to feel; the wet eyes of the sentimentalist betray his aversion to experience, his fear of life, his arid heart; and it is always, therefore, the signal of secret and violent inhumanity, the mask of cruelty.

    Great art must be achieved through the integrity of its own internal principles. Irony alone has no principles and no inherent purpose beyond mockery and destruction. The best examples of irony artfully expose lies, yet irony in itself has no aspiration to honesty, or anything else for that matter.

    So, where does art rise above ironic ridicule and aspire to greatness, in terms of challenging convention and elevating the human spirit? Where does Glory Hallelujah meet integrity?”

    “Audre Lorde riffs on Shelley’s poet legislator line:

    [Poetry] forms the quality of the light within which we predicate our hopes and dreams toward survival and change, first made into language, then into idea, then into more tangible action… The farthest horizons of our hopes and fears are cobbled by our poems, carved from the rock experiences of our daily lives.”

    Gosh, this is an old thread…and maybe it’s useful for the following…

    Although a “Legacy” thread might be better. In the Women’s March held in Chicago….there was a sign with a Cormac McCarthy reference!

    I don’t know how to post a pic here…so here is the link to my blog….

    <p>Some internet sites use very fundamental coloring pages for kids that could be published off as well as colored. Others produce interactive coloring pages that need kids to work on the computer system itself to color the pictures. Unlike the basic internet sites, the interactive coloring pages are often discovered on a lot more complicated websites that act as a full-fledged community. The coloring pages are only one of many points offered to do on a certain website.</p>
