"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

Well, I am reading her essay about Aristotle's concept of psyche and I don't agree with her views on Descartes's alleged solipsism. But she was courageous. :)

A quote about Descartes: "Contrast the picture fostered by the Cartesian mens. We are locked into our
solipsistic consciousness; bothered about how to establish that there is anything
outside it, let alone whether there are other minds."
