"The known universe has one complete lover and that is the greatest poet. He consumes an eternal passion and is indifferent which chance happens and which possible contingency of fortune or misfortune and persuades daily and hourly his delicious pay. What balks or breaks others is fuel for his burning progress to contact and amorous joy. Other proportions of the reception of pleasure dwindle to nothing to his proportions. All expected from heaven or from the highest he is rapport with in the sight of the daybreak or a scene of the winter woods or the presence of children playing or with his arm round the neck of a man or woman. His love above all love has leisure and expanse . . . . he leaves room ahead of himself. He is no irresolute or suspicious lover . . . he is sure . . . he scorns intervals. His experience and the showers and thrills are not for nothing. Nothing can jar him . . . . suffering and darkness cannot—death and fear cannot. To him complaint and jealousy and envy are corpses buried and rotten in the earth . . . . he saw them buried. The sea is not surer of the shore or the shore of the sea than he is of the fruition of his love and of all perfection and beauty."

The person who writes this piece; available in the public domain now;
is considered one of the greatest minds of the 19th and 20th century.

Can anyone recognize the philosopher, and does anyone think
what this philosopher says makes sense..:)

And does it fall within the
'new age' realm of
TL;DR..;)

-- Walt Whitman, "Leaves of Grass", 1855

Not one of his better works.

A subjective analysis of course; But it is the work
that he is most noted for out of all his works.

And of course few cared for it when first written;

He had to self-publish with his own dollars;

forced back into 'menial work' shortly after.
