“In the past, it seemed to make sense for a sportswriter on sabbatical from the playpen to attend the quadrennial hawgkilling when Presidential candidates are chosen, to observe and report upon politicians at play.

—Walter Wellesley (Red)
“The American people is out to get the kaiser. We are bending every nerve and every energy towards that end; anybody who gets in the way of the great machine the energy and devotion of a hundred million patriots is building towards the stainless purpose of saving civilization from the Huns will be mashed like a fly. Im surprised that a collegebred man like you hasnt more sense. Dont monkey with the buzzsaw.”
—John Dos Passos (18961970)
“I am filling the room
with the words from my pen.
Words leak out of it like a miscarriage.
I am zinging words out into the air
and they come back like squash balls.
Yet there is silence.”
—Anne Sexton (19281974)
“I dont pan out on the prophets
An free-will, an that sort of thing
But I blieve in God an the angels,
Ever sence one night last spring.”
—John Milton Hay (18381905)
