Susan Sontag
“Who believes today that war can be abolished? No one, not even pacifists.”
Susan Sontag, Regarding the Pain of Others

“Most fundamentally, I used to write because I received positive feedback. To a guy who was picked on pretty relentlessly through a lot of his childhood, the respect and affection of students and teachers is addictive. It was a couple years after grad school that I realized that a need for affirmation wasn’t a good enough reason to keep writing, especially in the face of rejection after rejection after even personal rejection, and that if I was going to do it, I had to acknowledge that it was going to take my whole life. The decision to do it until I’m dead has made the writing and the writing life so much easier.”
Donald Dunbar

John Berryman
“I am so wise I had my mouth sewn shut.”
John Berryman

Salvador Plascencia
“One day I will forgive you; until then there are scabs everywhere that you have touched me.”
Salvador Plascencia, The People of Paper
