For the listener, who listens in the snow,
And, nothing himself, beholds
Nothing that is not there and the nothing that is.

~ Wallace Stevens, The Snowman, Harmonium, 1921

The world about us would be desolate except for the world within us.

~ Wallace Stevens, The Necessary Angel: Reality & the Imagination, 1951
