Subject: Valery quote
There is a widely circulated (on the net) quotation from Paul Valery,
Englished as "Seeing is forgetting the name of the thing one sees" -- used
as title of a marvelous book by Lawrence Weschler, inter alia. Could
anyone supply the French original? Is it famous among Valerians, or is
Weschler responsible for its propagation?
