Reviewing is one of those generosities that I always thinks good literary citizens should do more of, and then I shrink from the task when I have to put my thoughts to page.

And so it was with great pl...

Virginia Woolf
“That perhaps is your task--to find the relation between things that seem incompatible yet have a mysterious affinity, to absorb every experience that comes your way fearlessly and saturate it completely so that your poem is a whole, not a fragment; to re-think human life into poetry and so give us tragedy again and comedy by means of characters not spun out at length in the novelist's way, but condensed and synthesized in the poet's way--that is what we look to you to do now.”
Virginia Woolf

Rainer Maria Rilke

because it serenely disdains to destroy us.

Rainer Maria Rilke, Duino Elegies
