“I live not in myself, but I become a portion of all around me … Are not the mountains, waves and skies a part of me and of my soul, as I of them?” -Lord Byron. See the full poem at the end of this post from which this quote is derived.
Of course that’s what I always say when asked what I am. Actually, I often take it as far as saying that I am all that is not me. Yeah, well … never mind. A line for another time. But do read on for something that makes sense to normal people.
I stumbled onto this quote at Joseph Cornell’s Sharing Nature website.
