“The great war that broke so suddenly upon the world two years ago, and which has swept up within its flame so great a part of the civilized world, has affected us very profoundly.... With its causes and its objects we are not concerned. The obscure fountains from which its stupendous flood has burst we are not interested to search for or explore.”
—Woodrow Wilson (18561924)
“Every few years something new breaks into the circle of my thoughts.”
—Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
“Parents who want a fresh point of view on their furniture are advised to drop down on all fours and accompany the nine or ten month old on his rounds. It is probably many years since you last studied the underside of a dining room chair. The ten month old will study this marvel with as much concentration and reverence as a tourist in the Cathedral of Chartres.”
—Selma H. Fraiberg (20th century)
“But you were not living at all,
and I was half-living,
so where the years blight these others,
we, who were not of the years,
we got nowhere.”
—Hilda Doolittle (18861961)
