W.H. Auden
“Follow, poet, follow right
To the bottom of the night,
With your unconstraining voice
Still persuade us to rejoice;

With the farming of a verse
Make a vineyard of the curse,
Sing of human unsuccess
In a rapture of distress;

In the deserts of the heart
Let the healing fountain start,
In the prison of his days
Teach the free man how to praise.”
W.H. Auden, Another Time

Golda Meir
“One cannot and must not try to erase the past merely because it does not fit the present.”
Golda Meir, My Life

Willa Cather
“The heart of another is a dark forest, always, no matter how close it has been to one’s own.”
Willa Cather

Martin Luther King Jr.
“The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.”
Martin Luther King Jr.

Jim Harrison
“Dad said I would always be "high minded and low waged" from reading too much Ralph Waldo Emerson. Maybe he was right.”
Jim Harrison, The English Major
