    A new idea is rarely born like Venus attended by graces
    More commonly it’s modeled of baling wire and acne.
    More commonly it wheezes and tips over.
    Marge Piercy (b. 1936)

    Scepticism is an ability, or mental attitude, which opposes appearances to judgments in any way whatsoever, with the result that, owing to the equipollence of the objects and reasons thus opposed we are brought firstly to a state of mental suspense and next to a state of “unperturbedness” or quietude.
    Sextus Empiricus (2nd or 3rd cen., A.d.)

    The key to the age may be this, or that, or the other, as the young orators describe; the key to all ages is—Imbecility: imbecility in the vast majority of men, at all times, and even in heroes, in all but certain eminent moments: victims of gravity, customs and fear. This gives force to the strong,—that the multitude have no habit of self-reliance or original action.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    If you do not remember while you are writing, it may seem confused to others but actually it is clear and eventually that clarity will be clear, that is what a master-piece is, but if you remember while you are writing it will seem clear at the time to any one but the clarity will go out of it that is what a master- piece is not.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)

    Why does man freeze to death trying to reach the North Pole? Why does man drive himself to suffer the steam and heat of the Amazon? Why does he stagger his mind with the mathematics of the sky? Once the question mark has arisen in the human brain the answer must be found, if it takes a hundred years. A thousand years.
    Walter Reisch (1903–1963)

    Draw round beloved and bitter men,
    Draw round and raise a shout;
    The ghost of Roger Casement
    Is beating on the door.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    as if in a fog of feather-light
    goosedown-silvery seed-thoughts
    a rusty mind in its autumn
    reviewed, renewed
    its winged power.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)
