    O may I join the choir invisible

    George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)

    His virtues walked their narrow round,
    Nor made a pause, nor left a void;
    And sure the Eternal Master found
    The single talent well employed.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    Much is made of the accelerating brutality of young people’s crimes, but rarely does our concern for dangerous children translate into concern for children in danger. We fail to make the connection between the use of force on children themselves, and violent antisocial behavior, or the connection between watching father batter mother and the child deducing a link between violence and masculinity.
    Letty Cottin Pogrebin (20th century)

    Burning in the bride bed of love, in the whirl-
    Pool at the wanting centre, in the folds
    Of paradise, in the spun bud of the world.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
