For The Love Of Wisdom – Jane Hirshfield – Metaphors

Jane Hirshfield (February 24, 1953 -)

Metaphors give words a way to go beyond their own meaning. They are handles on the door of what we can know and of what we can imagine. Each door leads to some new house and some new world that only that one handle can open… What’s amazing is this: By making a handle, you can make a world.
