A Poet Reflects

“An intellectual? Yes. And never deny it.  An intellectual is someone whose mind watches itself.  I like this, because I am happy to be both halves, the watcher and the watched. ‘Can they be brought together?’  This is a practical question.  We must get down to it. ‘I despise intelligence’ really means: ‘I cannot bear my doubts.’”
—Albert Camus
