Emily Dickinson
“If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.”
Emily Dickinson

Amy Hempel
“Dreams: the place most of us get what we need.”
Amy Hempel, The Collected Stories

Emily Dickinson
“Tell all the Truth but tell it slant--
Success in Circuit lies
Too bright for our infirm Delight
The Truth's superb surprise

As Lightning to the Children eased
With explanation kind
The Truth must dazzle gradually
Or every man be blind--”
Emily Dickinson

Audre Lorde
“Your silence will not protect you.”
Audre Lorde, Sister Outsider: Essays and Speeches

Herman Melville
“I am a man who, from his youth upwards, has been filled with a profound conviction that the easiest way of life is the best.”
Herman Melville, Bartleby the Scrivener
