"Be joyful / though you have considered all the facts." - Wendell Berry

"We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake, not by mechanical aids, but by an infinite expectation of the dawn, which does not forsake us in our soundest sleep. I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by conscious endeavor."   - Henry David Thoreau 

"I prefer the absurdity of writing poems / to the absurdity of not writing poems."  - Wislawa Szymborska
