    A cheese may disappoint. It may be dull, it may be naive, it may be oversophisticated. Yet it remains cheese, milk’s leap toward immortality.
    Clifton Fadiman (b. 1904)

    To divide one’s life by years is of course to tumble into a trap set by our own arithmetic. The calendar consents to carry on its dull wall-existence by the arbitrary timetables we have drawn up in consultation with those permanent commuters, Earth and Sun. But we, unlike trees, need grow no annual rings.
    —Clifton Fadiman (b. 1904)

    Poetry is a matter of life, not just a matter of language.
    —Lucille Clifton (b. 1936)
