Wendell Berry
“Rats and roaches live by competition under the laws of supply and demand; it is the privilege of human beings to live under the laws of justice and mercy.”
Wendell Berry

W.B. Yeats
“The intellect of man is forced to choose
Perfection of the life, or of the work.”
William Butler Yeats, The Collected Poems of W.B. Yeats

Karl Marx
“The less you eat, drink and read books; the less you go to the theatre, the dance hall, the public house; the less you think, love, theorize, sing, paint, fence, etc., the more you save-the greater becomes your treasure which neither moths nor dust will devour-your capital. The less you are, the more you have; the less you express your own life, the greater is your alienated life-the greater is the store of your estranged being.”
Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels

William Shakespeare
“When he shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.”
William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

Marilynne Robinson
“This is an interesting planet. It deserves all the attention you can give it.”
Marilynne Robinson, Gilead
