    This spending of the best part of one’s life earning money in order to enjoy a questionable liberty during the least valuable part of it reminds me of the Englishman who went to India to make a fortune first, in order that he might return to England and live the life of a poet. He should have gone up garret at once.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    What if all the forces of society were bent upon developing [poor] children? What if society’s business were making people instead of profits? How much of their creative beauty of spirit would remain unquenched through the years? How much of this responsiveness would follow them through life?
    Mary Heaton Vorse (1874–1966)

    Language is a process of free creation; its laws and principles are fixed, but the manner in which the principles of generation are used is free and infinitely varied. Even the interpretation and use of words involves a process of free creation.
    Noam Chomsky (b. 1928)

    Whatever it was I lost, whatever I wept for
    Was a wild, gentle thing, the small dark eyes
    Loving me in secret.
    It is here. At a touch of my hand,
    The air fills with delicate creatures
    From the other world.
    James Wright (1927–1980)

    Although I’ve risen! and my back is bold.
    My tongue is brainy, choosing from among
    Care, rage, surprise, despair, and choosing care.
    I’m semi-splendid within what I’ve defended.
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)

    With reason one can travel the world over; without it it is hard to move an inch.
    Chinese proverb.

    Why, what a candy deal of courtesy
    This fawning greyhound then did proffer me!
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    indolence read as abnegation,
    slattern thought styled intuition,
    every lapse forgiven, our crime
    only to cast too bold a shadow
    or smash the mold straight off.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)
