    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)

    I made a list of things I have
    to remember and a list
    of things I want to forget,
    but I see they are the same list.

The white race is the cancer of human history.
    Susan Sontag (b. 1933)

    Erasmus was the light of his century; others were its strength: he lighted the way; others knew how to walk on it while he himself remained in the shadow as the source of light always does. But he who points the way into a new era is no less worthy of veneration than he who is the first to enter it; those who work invisibly have also accomplished a feat.
    Stefan Zweig (18811942)

    If Shakespeare has not been equalled, he is sure to be surpassed, and surpassed by an American born now or yet to be born.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
