“I detest the thought of him
With his ten children under ten years old.
I hate his wretched little Racker Sect,
Alls ever I heard of it, which isnt much.”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
“Therefore with idle hands and head I sit
In late December before the fires daze
Punished by crimes of which I would be quit.”
—Allen Tate (18991979)
“I think taste is a social concept and not an artistic one. Im willing to show good taste, if I can, in somebody elses living room, but our reading life is too short for a writer to be in any way polite. Since his words enter into anothers brain in silence and intimacy, he should be as honest and explicit as we are with ourselves.”
—John Updike (b. 1932)
“The necessary has never been mans top priority. The passionate pursuit of the nonessential and the extravagant is one of the chief traits of human uniqueness. Unlike other forms of life, mans greatest exertions are made in the pursuit not of necessities but of superfluities.”
—Eric Hoffer (19021983)
