William Blake knew something of brevity. While he did write long stories and poems, it is his shorter ones i like most.
I think he understood the whole “less is more” concept.
Brevity has a certain punch to it which i really appreciate.
Here is one of my favorites of his:
He who binds to himself a joy
Does the winged life destroy;
But he who kisses joy as it flies
Lives in eternity’s sunrise.
–Eternity by William Blake
May we live the winged life…
