    It is not possible, for a poet, writing in any language, to protect himself from the tragic elements in human life....

    They hear in every whisper that speaks to them
    A shout and a cry.
    As like as not, when they take life over their door-sills
    They should let it go by.
    —Louise Bogan (1897–1970)

    The world is a puzzling place today. All these banks sending us credit cards, with our names on them. Well, we didn’t order any credit cards! We don’t spend what we don’t have. So we just cut them in half and throw them out, just as soon as we open them in the mail. Imagine a bank sending credit cards to two ladies over a hundred years old! What are those folks thinking?
    —Sarah Louise Delany (b. 1889)
