    My beautiful, my own
    My only Venice—this is breath! Thy breeze
    Thine Adrian sea-breeze, how it fans my face!

    And cool them into calmness!

    I’ve been described as a tough and noisy woman, a prize fighter, a man-hater, you name it. They call me Battling Bella, Mother Courage, and a Jewish mother with more complaints than Portnoy. There are those who say I’m impatient, impetuous, uppity, rude, profane, brash, and overbearing. Whether I’m any of those things, or all of them, you can decide for yourself. But whatever I am —and this ought to be made very clear—I am a very serious woman.
    Bella Abzug (b. 1920)

    But, most of all, the Great Society is not a safe harbor, a resting place, a final objective, a finished work. It is a challenge constantly renewed, beckoning us toward a destiny where the meaning of our lives matches the marvelous products of our labor.
    Lyndon Baines Johnson (1908–1973)

    There were twa sisters sat in a bour;
    Binnorie, O Binnorie!
    There cam a knight to be their wooer,
    By the bonnie milldams o’ Binnorie.
    Unknown. Binnorie; or, The Two Sisters (l. 1–4)

    Obscurantism is the academic theorist’s revenge on society for having consigned him or her to relative obscurity—a way of proclaiming one’s superiority in the face of one’s diminished influence.
    David Lehman (b. 1948)

    Will, when speaking well can’t win her,
    Saying nothing do’t?
    Prithee, why so mute?
    Sir John Suckling (1609–1642)
