Symbolism

We are symbols, and inhabit symbols.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

    While I agree with the quotation,
    I advocate to discriminate – not only for scientific reasons and reasoning – between us (as persons or “objects”), the symbol, which we stand for (the greater entities we represent, e. g. our roots, our karma etc.), and the symbols, which may be used to denote the whole.

  2. I agree with you. In fact, we are initiated into symbolism from birth through the religiuos beliefs of our family. In the absence of religion, symbols come via hobbies or family traditions. We our own private symbols we make major decisions, hold on to the image for support when times are bad, and hail them as our saviours when the sunshine reappears.
    Symbolism is the positive spark that ignites the mind, to seek and find.
