#FridayFantasy . . . . And his Soul said to him,



  

“Before him lay his shadow, which was the body of his soul, and behind him hung the moon
in the honey-coloured air.

“And his Soul said to him, ‘If indeed thou must drive me away, send me not forth without a
heart. The world is cruel, so give me thy heart to take with me.’ “


From Oscar Wilde, “The Fisherman and his Soul.”
