    In almost all climes the tortoise and the frog are among the precursors and heralds of this season, and birds fly with song and glancing plumage, and plants spring and bloom, and winds blow, to correct this slight oscillation of the poles and preserve the equilibrium of nature.

    Lift your eyes
    Where the roads dip and where the roads rise
    Seek only there
    Where the grey light meets the green air
    The hermit’s chapel, the pilgrim’s prayer.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    If we became students of Malcolm X, we would not have young black men out there killing each other like they’re killing each other now. Young black men would not be impregnating young black women at the rate going on now. We’d not have the drugs we have now, or the alcoholism.
    Spike Lee (b. 1956)

    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
