Happy Birthday, Handsome


    A man will be imprisoned in a room
    with a door that's unlocked and o-
    pens inwards, as long as it does
    not occur to him to pull rather 
    than to push.

    One might say, genius 
    is talent exercised 
    with courage.

rowing in the year at
his fjord in Skjolden,
1913, his refuge from
Cambridge and Vienna,
before his enlistment.

Remarks in his note-
books, 1940 and 1941.
