    Albert Camus (1913–1960)

    Degenerate sons and daughters,
    Life is too strong for you—
    It takes life to love Life.
    —Edgar Lee Masters (1869–1950)

    Thou hast brought him a pardon from good King John.”
    —Unknown. King John and the Abbot of Canterbury (l. 108)

    So there he is at last. Man on the moon. The poor magnificent bungler! He can’t even get to the office without undergoing the agonies of the damned, but give him a little metal, a few chemicals, some wire and twenty or thirty billion dollars and, vroom! there he is, up on a rock a quarter of a million miles up in the sky.
    Russell Baker (b. 1925)
