    A lustreless protrusive eye

    Indigenous to Minnesota, and almost completely ignored by its people, are the stark, unornamented, functional clusters of concrete—Minnesota’s grain elevators. These may be said to express unconsciously all the principles of modernism, being built for use only, with little regard for the tenets of esthetic design.
    —Federal Writers’ Project Of The Wor, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    Now launch the small ship, now as the body dies
    and life departs, launch out, the fragile soul
    in the fragile ship of courage, the ark of faith
    with its store of food and little cooking pans
    and change of clothes,
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    Nowhere is one more alone than in Paris ... and yet surrounded by crowds. Nowhere is one more likely to incur greater ridicule. And no visit is more essential.

    Where there is no vision, the people perish.
    —Bible: Hebrew Proverbs 29:18.

    President John F. Kennedy quoted this passage on the eve of his assassination in Dallas, Texas. Quoted in Theodore C. Sorenson, Kennedy, epilogue (1965)

    I take SPACE to be the central fact to man born in America.... I spell it large because it comes large here. Large and without mercy.
    Charles Olson (1910–1970)

    Against the Word the unstilled world still whirled
    About the center of the silent Word.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
