Friedrich Nietzsche
“No one can construct for you the bridge upon which precisely you must cross the stream of life, no one but you yourself alone.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

William Carlos Williams
“It's a strange courage
you give me ancient star:
Shine alone in the sunrise
toward which you lend no part!”
William Carlos Williams

Yasunari Kawabata
“As he caught his footing, his head fell back, and the Milky Way flowed down inside him with a roar.”
Yasunari Kawabata, Snow Country

Margaret Walker
“She had to find a way to lift them together. The only thing she had was a moan. And she moaned. That moan would become a Spiritual; that Spiritual would become Jazz; which would become Blues then Rhythm and Blues then Rap. That moan would define not only a people but the nation to which they were sailing. That moan would make those people decide that they should, that they could, live.”
Margaret Walker, Jubilee

William Stafford
“Which of the horses
we passed yesterday whinnied
all night in my dreams?
I want that one.”
William Stafford, Traveling Through The Dark
