‘Weymouth Sands’ Quote by John Cowper Powys

Jerry had indeed something in him that went beyond Rabelaisianism, in that he not only could get an ecstasy of curious satisfaction from the most drab, ordinary, homely, realistic aspects of what might be called the excremental under-tides of existence but he could slough off his loathing for humanity in this contemplation and grow gay, child-like, guileless.

I wish I’d used ‘The Excremental Under-tides of Existence‘ as my Blog name.
