    My list of things I never pictured myself saying when I pictured myself as a parent has grown over the years.

    Condemned to Hope’s delusive mine,
    As on we toil from day to day,
    By sudden blasts or slow decline
    Our social comforts drop away.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    ... the histories of Blacks and Jews in bondage and out of bondage, have been blood histories pursued through our kindred searchings for self-determination. Let this blood be a stain of honor that we share. Let us not now become enemies to ourselves and to each other.
    June Jordan (b. 1936)

    O wad some Pow’r the giftie gie us
    To see oursels as others see us!
    It wad frae monie a blunder free us
    And foolish notion:
    What airs in dress an’ gait wad lea’e us,
    And ev’n Devotion!
    Robert Burns (1759–1796)

    The bud of the apple is desire, the down-falling gold,
    The catbird’s gobble in the morning half-awake
    These are real only if I make them so. Whistle
    For me, grow green for me and, as you whistle and grow green,
    Intangible arrows quiver and stick in the skin
    And I taste at the root of the tongue the unreal of what is real.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    J.P. Harrah: What the hell are you doin’ here?
    Cole: I’m lookin’ at a tin star with a drunk pinned on it.
    Leigh Brackett (1915–1978)

    Myths and legends die hard in America. We love them for the extra dimension they provide, the illusion of near-infinite possibility to erase the narrow confines of most men’s reality. Weird heroes and mould-breaking champions exist as living proof to those who need it that the tyranny of “the rat race” is not yet final.
    Hunter S. Thompson (b. 1939)

    Shea—they call him Scholar Jack—
    Went down the list of the dead.
    Officers, seamen, gunners, marines,
    The crews of the gig and yawl,
    The bearded man and the lad in his teens,
    Carpenters, coal-passers—all.
    Joseph I. C. Clarke (1846–1925)
