humanity

quote, charles hartshone, wisdom as moderation, p84.

We may be trifling parts of the divine whole, but parts we are; and we must therefore contribute something to the whole. God cannot in everyway be independent of us.

The Poet's task is to extend the images a little to be sure that the human quality of the mind is operating in them, to be sure that they are human images, images that humanize the forces of the cosmos. Then we are led to a cosmology of what is human. Instead of experiencing a naive anthropomorphism, we turn man over to elemental and deeply rooted forces.

~Gaston Bachelard, Air and Dreams, 41.
