Richard Sennett
“Who needs me?” is a question of character which suffers a radical challenge in modern capitalism. The system radiates indifference. It does so in terms of the outcomes of human striving, as in winner-take-all markets, where there is little connection between risk and reward. It radiates indifference in the organization of absence of trust, where there is no reason to be needed. And it does so through reengineering of institutions in which people are treated as disposable. Such practices obviously and brutally diminish the sense of mattering as a person, of being necessary to others.”
Richard Sennett, The Corrosion of Character: The Personal Consequences of Work in the New Capitalism

Walter Russell
“Where Love is there also is unity, harmony and the peace of Love's balanced rhythms in a united world. Where hate is there follows the degeneracy of disunity as night follows the day. That is the lesson which unfolding man has still to learn. Until he learns that simple lesson of power which comes from giving of service to his fellow man instead of taking from him against his will, his civilizations will disappear in their own man-made chaos, one after another, until he learns that lesson.”
Walter Russell, A New Concept of the Universe

Rita Dove
“We wire the sky for comfort; we thread it through our lungs for a perfect fit. We’ve arranged this calm, though it is constantly unraveling. Where does it go then, atmosphere suckered up an invisible flue? How can we know where it goes?”
Rita Dove, Collected Poems: 1974-2004

Richard Sennett
“Developments in high technology reflect an ancient model for craftsmanship, but the reality on the ground is that people who aspire to be good craftsmen are depressed, ignored, or misunderstood by social institutions. These ills are complicated because few institutions set out to produce unhappy workers. People seek refuge in inwardness when material engagement proves empty; mental anticipation is privileged above concrete encounter; standards of quality in work separate design from execution.”
Richard Sennett, The Craftsman

Eavan Boland
“Nothing is left in my memory
of a summer
that promised nothing.

except the ominous
end of it. But I remember clearly
that autumn when darkness came

to lend its cover to a killing season
seeing at last these
ill-at-ease petals

estranged from moonlight and still
related to it: outcasts
of metal, of steel”
Eavan Boland, A Woman Without a Country: Poems
