“The Owl of Minerva spreads its wings, only with the falling of the dusk”-Hegel. I say, what’s so catastrophic about that?

The Hegelian perspective says that philosophy can grasp the truth of a culture, however, only when the culture has matured enough so that what the absolute has revealed to it has finally become clear. But by this time, says Hegel, it is too late for the society to change. Hegel makes this point in these lines in which he refers to the owl which was a symbol of Minerva, the Roman Goddess of wisdom. And the dusk, in this context defines lateness.

On the contrary, the Apekshatic perspective, that of a romantic nature states that if Minerva is the Goddess of wisdom, then she’s also the deity of arts and poetry. Similarly, the dusk defines lateness as well as beauty. These lines say that arts and poetry take flight when beauty is provided to them. Why’s it that all negativity comes to us before positivity?

It’s all about how you see.

Know the owl

Born on 1st October’ 2014, this Libran owl is a lover of romance, lyricism and philosophy. The owl is a believer of absolute simplicity, and his approach is clearly reflected in his works and talents too. His heart has always been his kryptonite in the real life; however, this weakness serves as a strong point in his write ups.

What all it serves

With about 3000 visitors per year and more than 800 followers over the globe, the owl loves to serve the readers of the  world with his flair. You’ll find a variety of poetry styles as you keep on scrolling down. Free verses are of course, the forte of the owl. He’s pretty good at epigrams, limericks, sonnets, haikus, ottava rimas and terza rimas. The limericks aren’t usually hilarious because of the poet’s extremely emotional nature. Till yet, only poems have been published here, but some sort of articles may appear occasionally.

Special demands are gratefully accepted by the owl. Other than his own works, sometimes reblogs and shares might be found.

My job, as I create this page, is not to serve you the sayings of remarkable personalities you already know. Goodreads and brainy quotes are there for you!! Rather I choose to share some amazing stuff I’ve heard from the remarkable people around me, whom you don’t know.

“A man should learn to be emotional. Being humorous doesn’t even change a whit around you, but when you’re emotional, you get the valor to change the whole world. Even the world favors the defense, and not the attackers” –Anonymous

 

These days, the owl says…

“Their shoulders held the sky suspended,

They stood, and earth’s foundations stay.

What God abandoned, these defended,

And saved the sum of things for pay.”

 

The Owl salutes the brave heroes of the Indian army.
