Alone am I, mournful and angry.“

„I was taken by His voice and His gestures, not by the substance of His speech. He charmed me but never convinced me; for He was too vague, too distant and obscure to reach my mind.“

—  Khalil Gibran, buch Jesus, The Son of Man

Manasseh: On the Speech and Gesture of Jesus
Jesus, The Son of Man (1928)
Kontext: I admired Him as a man rather than as a leader. He preached something beyond my liking, perhaps beyond my reason. And I would have no man preach to me.
I was taken by His voice and His gestures, not by the substance of His speech. He charmed me but never convinced me; for He was too vague, too distant and obscure to reach my mind.
I have known other men like Him. They are never constant nor are they consistent. It is with eloquence not with principles that they hold your ear and your passing thought, but never the core of your heart.

This Eastertide call into mind the men,
Now far from home, who, with their sweethearts, should
Have gathered them and will do never again.“

„Like a Long Magnolia Blossom Bending to the Wind. Under heavy silence. Of a house in mourning. Only the cry of cicadas. Ma'am, ma'am, ma'am. Seem to long for you who is now gone. Under the August sun. The Indian Lilacs turn crimson. As if trying to heal the wounds of the mind. My wife has departed alone. Only I am left. Like a lone magnolia blossom bending to the wind. Where can I appeal. The sadness of a broken heart.“

—  Park Chung-hee Korean Army general and the leader of South Korea from 1961 to 1979 1917 - 1979
