    Sweet death, small son, our instrument
    Of immortality,
    Your cries and hungers document
    Our bodily decay.
    —Donald Hall (b. 1928)

    The woman was old and ragged and gray
    And bent with the chill of the Winter’s day.
    —Mary Dow Brine (1816–1913)

    Are we no greater than the noise we make
    Along one blind atomic pilgrimage
    Whereon by crass chance billeted we go
    Because our brains and bones and cartilage
    Will have it so?
    Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935)

    We all live in a house on fire, no fire department to call; no way out, just the upstairs window to look out of while the fire burns the house down with us trapped, locked in it.
    Tennessee Williams (1914–1983)

    And when discipline is concerned, the parent who has to make it to the end of an eighteen-hour day—who works at a job and then takes on a second shift with the kids every night—is much more likely to adopt the survivor’s motto: “If it works, I’ll use it.” From this perspective, dads who are even slightly less involved and emphasize firm limits or character- building might as well be talking a foreign language. They just don’t get it.
    Ron Taffel (20th century)
