THE DANCE The slow waltz The sultry tango of the Beloved Dancing with
Himself This is all that has ever existed even before beginning-less time Ah, but
you are more than a marionette, my dear You are His Hands gently brushing
creation's soft cheek You are His feet gracefully flowing, following His lead on this
most beautiful dance floor You are His ears and eyes exclaiming bright joy at
each Glorious triad of notes that giggle through the night sky You are more than a
marionette, ...

my own, be in touch with kings?—should know the last new policy of
governments before it is made ripe for public declaration?—should hold the
secrets of 'my lord' and 'my lady' apart from each other's cognisance, and be able
to amuse myself with their little ridiculous matrimonial differences, as though they
were puppets playing their parts for use at a marionette show! I do not ask these
people to confide in me,—I do not want them to seek me out,—and yet the cry is, '
still they come!

His hand is simply made a cat's-paw of. The matter is entirely a business
transaction, entered into by the parent and conducted through regular marriage
brokers. In it he plays only the part of a marionette. His revenge for being thus
bartered out of what might be the better half of his life, he takes eventually on the
next succeeding generation. His death may be said to be the most important act
of his whole life. For then only can his personal existence be properly considered
to begin.

... when she was a man. Her name was Maung Mon, she said, and she used to
work the dolls in a travelling marionette show. It was through her knowledge and
partiality for marionettes that it was first suspected, her parents told me, whom
she had been in her former life. She could even as a sucking-child manipulate
the strings of a marionette- doll. But the actual discovery came when she was
about four years old, and she recognized a certain marionette booth and dolls as
her own.

He is a marionette made of wood. The story starts with a carpenter finding a
magic piece of wood. He gives it to his old friend Gepetto who makes a
marionette out of it. The magic wood becomes a living doll, changing in the end
to a real living boy. The story can be looked upon as a psychodrama in which the
growth of a boy is followed through seven developmental stages. When he meets
challenges, he will often regress and behave as a very small boy who does not
want to learn ...

Immanence is the condition of possibility of grace. The transcendence of the soul,
its exteriority to the movement, is its pernicious installation as a misruling
principle. Emphatic on the gains to be made by the extinction of the ruling spirit of
the puppeteer, Herr C. states his dream of a marionette from which the last
fragment of spirit has been eliminated: "He smiled, saying he dared assert that if
a mechanic would construct a marionette according to his specific requirements,
he could, ...

The world of the Renaissance had for us the unreality of a glittering and godless
fever-dream, and the mankind of Reformation times had reality indeed, but only
the reality of a dull gnarled woodcut. The life of the Baroque spoke to us like the
strange grimacings of a stiff marionette-play, and the soul of the Rococo as the
distant echo of a tired autumnal evensong. Even the familiar milieu of our
Classicism was seen as the half-light of the declining afternoon, and the French
Revolution, ...
