Song of Myself - Walt Whitman

This picture was taken in Amsterdam in 2009.

Walt Whitman was an American poet, essayist and journalist. Song of Myself was first published in the 1855 edition of Leaves of Grass.

"Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself, I am large, I contain multitudes."

"Be curious, not judgmental."

"I am for those who believe in loose delights, I share the midnight orgies of young men, I dance with the dancers and drink with the drinkers."

"Keep your face always toward the sunshine - and shadows will fall behind you."

"I have learned that to be with those I like is enough."

"Why are there trees I never walk under but large and melodious thoughts descend upon me?"
