Famous quotes by karl shapiro:

    However others calculate the cost,
    To us the final aggregate is one,
    One with a name, one transferred to the blest;
    And though another stoops and takes the gun,
    We cannot add the second to the first.
    Karl Shapiro (b. 1913)

    Laughter and grief join hands. Always the heart
    Clumps in the breast with heavy stride;
    The face grows lined and wrinkled like a chart,
    The eyes bloodshot with tears and tide.
    Let the wind blow, for many a man shall die.
    Karl Shapiro (b. 1913)
