John Berryman
“We must travel in the direction of our fear.”
John Berryman

George Eliot
“Our caresses, our tender words, our still rapture under the influence of autumn sunsets, or pillared vistas, or calm majestic statues, or Beethoven symphonies, all bring with them the consciousness that they are mere waves and ripples in an unfathomable ocean of love and beauty; our emotion in its keenest moment passes from expression to silence, our love at its highest flood rushes beyond its object, and loses itself in the sense of divine mystery.”
George Eliot, Adam Bede

Joseph Conrad
“Felicity, felicity - how shall I say it? - is quaffed out of a golden cup in every latitude: the flavour is with you - with you alone, and you can make it as intoxicating as you please.”
Joseph Conrad, Lord Jim

Allan Bloom
“There is no real education that does not respond to felt need; anything else acquired is trifling display.”
Allan Bloom, The Closing of the American Mind

Bob Dylan
“Everything passes,
Everything changes,
Just do what you think you should do.”
Bob Dylan
