â€œSometimes it takes darkness and the sweet / confinement of your aloneness / to learn / anything or anyone / that does not bring you alive / is too small for you.â€
David Whyte is a poet and philosopher who believes in the power of a â€œbeautiful questionâ€ amidst the drama of work as well as the drama of life â€” amidst the ways the two overlap, whether we want them to or not. He shared a deep friendship with the late Irish philosopher John Oâ€™Donohue. They were, David Whyte says, like â€œtwo bookends.â€ More recently, heâ€™s written about the consolation, nourishment, and underlying meaning of everyday words.
