“The human life cycle no less than evolves around the box; from the open-topped box called a bassinet, to the pine box we call a coffin, the box is our past and, just as assuredly, our future. It should not surprise us then that the lowly box plays such a significant role in the first Christmas story. For Christmas began in a humble, hay-filled box of splintered wood. The Magi, wise men who had traveled far to see the infant king, laid treasure-filled boxes at the feet of that holy child. And in the end, when He had ransomed our sins with His blood, the Lord of Christmas was laid down in a box of stone. How fitting that each Christmas season brightly wrapped boxes skirt the pine boughs of Christmas trees around the world. ”
Richard Paul Evans, The Christmas Box

Lauren Myracle
“And they all have pretty children,
And the children go to school,
And the children to go summer camp,
And then to the university,
Where they are put in bozes
And they come out all the same.
- Malvina Reynolds”
Lauren Myracle, Bliss

Eduardo Galeano
“Η Μάγδα Λεμονιέρ κόβει από τις εφημερίδες λέξεις κάθε μεγέθους και τις φυλάει σε κουτιά. Τις οργισμένες λέξεις τις φυλάει σε κόκκινο κουτί. Τις λέξεις αγάπης, σε πράσινο κουτί. Τις ουδέτερες, σε μπλε κουτί. Τις μελαγχολικές, σε κίτρινο κουτί. Και σ'ένα διάφανο κουτί φυλάει τις μαγικές λέξεις.
Συχνά ανοίγει τα κουτιά και τα τοποθετεί ανάποδα πάνω στο τραπέζι, έτσι ώστε οι λέξεις να ανακατευτούν όπως τους γουστάρει. Τότε οι λέξεις της λένε τι συμβαίνει, και τι πρόκειται να συμβεί.”
Eduardo Galeano, Mujeres

“The Raven's author_ _ _

Walked down the road, abbreviated so we're told. _ _

The bus came by and one departed,
That is to say, he got this. _ _ _

Come on now, it's time to play.
When water's cold it is that way. _ _ _

Put the pieces together, then roll you die.
Natural 20! Flying higt!
Find the boxes, nearly there:
Level up to 7, here is there.”
Megan Frazer Blakemore, The Friendship Riddle
