    ... the darkness,
    Inviting to this house
    Air from a field, air from a salt grave ...
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    Jesus Christ belonged to the true race of the prophets. He saw with an open eye the mystery of the soul. Drawn by its severe harmony, ravished with its beauty, he lived in it, and had his being there. Alone in all history he estimated the greatness of man.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Necessity makes women very weak or very strong, and pent-up rivers are sometimes dangerous. Look to it!
    Mary Worthington, U.S. women’s magazine contributor. The Lily, p. 183 ( November 1856)

    Life is a series of sensations connected to different states of consciousness.
    Rémy De Gourmont (1858–1915)

    Human life in common is only made possible when a majority comes together which is stronger than any separate individual and which remains united against all separate individuals. The power of this community is then set up as “right” in opposition to the power of the individual, which is condemned as “brute force.”
    Sigmund Freud (1856–1939)

    Blind Beggar: How do you know so much about city ordinances?
    Inspector Clouseau: What sort of stupid question is that? Are you blind?
    Blind Beggar: Yes.
    Blake Edwards (b. 1922)

    Turn back,
    back
    to the lake of Delos;
    lest all the song notes
    pause and break
    across a blood-stained throat....
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    Different persons growing up in the same language are like different bushes trimmed and trained to take the shape of identical elephants. The anatomical details of twigs and branches will fulfill the elephantine form differently from bush to bush, but the overall outward results are alike.
    Willard Van Orman Quine (b. 1908)

    I am obliged to confess that I do not regard the abolition of slavery as a means of warding off the struggle of the two races in the Southern states. The Negroes may long remain slaves without complaining; but if they are once raised to the level of freemen, they will soon revolt at being deprived of almost all their civil rights; and as they cannot become the equals of the whites, they will speedily show themselves as enemies.
    Alexis de Tocqueville (1805–1859)

    It is surely easier to confess a murder over a cup of coffee than in front of a jury.
    Friedrich Dürrenmatt (1921–1990)

    All in all, I’d say,
    the world is strangling.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    In skating over thin ice, our safety is in our speed.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    If it be aught toward the general good,
    Set honor in one eye, and death i’th’ other,
    And I will look on both indifferently;
    For let the gods so speed me as I love
    The name of honor more than I fear death.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
