    Speech is an arrangement of notes that will never be played again.
    —F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)

    How can I live among this gentle
    absolescent breed of heroes, and not weep?
    Unicorns, almost,
    for they are falling into two legends
    in which their stupidity and chivalry
    are celebrated. Each, fool and herb, will be an immortal.
    —Keith Douglas (1920–1944)

    “Child,
    why do you waste your time
    on childish things alone?”
    “Clothe yourself in anger.”
    “Take courage,
    and cast off this honesty
    toward your lover.”
    When her girlfriends
    gave her such advice,
    she answered,
    her face frightened,
    “Speak softly.
    The lord of my breath
    is still in my heart.
    No doubt he’ll hear you.”
    Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)

    Strike on your drummes, spread out your ancyents!
    Sound out your trumpetts, sound out amaine!
    —Unknown. Sir Andrew Barton. . .

    Time has the same effect on the mind as on the face; the predominant passion and the strongest feature become more conspicuous from the others’ retiring.
