“What was any art but an effort to make a sheath, a mould in which to imprison for a moment the shining, elusive element which is life itselflife hurrying past us and running away, too strong to stop, too sweet to lose?”
—Willa Cather (18731947)
“The contention that a standing army and navy is the best security of peace is about as logical as the claim that the most peaceful citizen is he who goes about heavily armed. The experience of every-day life fully proves that the armed individual is invariably anxious to try his strength. The same is historically true of governments. Really peaceful countries do not waste life and energy in war preparations, with the result that peace is maintained.”
—Emma Goldman (18691940)
