You are all so weak,
they say.

I look at the weakness around me,

W.H. Auden
“The stars are not wanted now: put out every one;
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood.
For nothing now can ever come to any good.”
W.H. Auden, Selected Poems

W.H. Auden
“How should we like it were stars to burn
With a passion for us we could not return?
If equal affection cannot be,
Let the more loving one be me.”
W.H. Auden

W.H. Auden
“Poetry might be defined as the clear expression of mixed feelings.”
W.H. Auden, New Year Letter

W.H. Auden
“No opera plot can be sensible, for people do not sing when they are feeling sensible.”
W.H. Auden

W.H. Auden
“The nightingales are sobbing in
The orchards of our mothers,
And hearts that we broke long ago
Have long been breaking others;
Tears are round, the sea is deep:
Roll them overboard and sleep. ”
W.H. Auden
