Hi all -- sorry it's taken me a while to find this one!
And away we go ...

It's from an old anthology in my mom's dusty library, titled "1,000 Beautiful Things : a collection of poetry and prose".

"This learned I from the shadow of a tree, that to and fro did sway against a wall, our shadow selves, our influence, may fall where we can never be." -- Anonymous

Good luck everyone!

... the Devil?

Our influence may fall where we can never be....


lionette  23 Jun 2004 
Sorry elf and Sillanza, I wasn't thinking of either of those.

How about judgement, and realizing that those around us ARE influenced, so we should act accordingly. 

Satori  23 Jun 2004 

Tricky little lionette. This is a puzzle....

For whatever reason the sixes keep coming to mind.

I'll say the 6 of swords.

The Moon? 

lionette  23 Jun 2004 
mercenary -- Judgement was my second choice!

elf -- not sixes

Keep thinking of "our influence" ...

I'll wait just a bit longer before handing out more clues, if that's ok ;)

Then my second choice is Justice. 

lionette  23 Jun 2004 
That's it Merc!

My thinking:
One's sphere of influence has the yin and yang element, "shadow selves", like the scales of Justice. We need not be in that specific moment to feel its effects.

Was it too easy?? ;)

Ok, Merc -- your turn!

Was this the Lit One Line quote or the other one? 

lionette  23 Jun 2004 
the standard Literature Clue, I suppose ... but by looking at titles of current threads, seems it's your choice :)
