  1. I love quotes that have a message that isn’t clearly recognized, which the author has done so intentionally for only those who able to figure it out

    • This particular author wasn’t so much interested in hiding his meaning, as much as this was his preferred method of writing – to take something and turn it back in on itself. It was called ‘paradoxical’ writing in his day, and it used to drive his critics almost mad with the distraction of it all. Many of his quotable moments are rife with the technique. I highly recommend reading him further.
      Thanks for the comment.

      • That is exactly what I was saying , we’ll trying to. I’m not a great writer but thanks for verifying my statement and wording it properly.
        “hidden” was the word that threw you off on what I was trying to say. Thanks for revising it to represent what I was saying
