Walter Mosley
“A peasant that reads is a prince in waiting.”
Walter Mosley, The Long Fall

Leo Tolstoy
“Is it really possible to tell someone else what one feels?”
Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

Billy Collins
Introduction to Poetry

I ask them to take a poem
and hold it up to the light
like a color slide

or press an ear against its hive.

I say drop a mouse into a poem
and watch him probe his way out,

or walk inside the poem's room
and feel the walls for a light switch.

I want them to waterski
across the surface of a poem
waving at the author's name on the shore.

But all they want to do
is tie the poem to a chair with rope
and torture a confession out of it.

They begin beating it with a hose
to find out what it really means.”
Billy Collins, The Apple That Astonished Paris

John Stuart Mill
“So true is that unnatural generally means only uncustomary, and that everything which is usual appears natural.”
John Stuart Mill, The Subjection of Women
