‘If I should die,’ said I to myself, ‘I have left no immortal work behind me - nothing to make my friends proud of my memory - but I have lov’d the principle of beauty in all things, and if I had had time I would have made myself remember’d.’ - John Keats

“Like so many Americans, she was trying to construct a life that made sense from things she found in gift shops.” - Kurt Vonnegut

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no; it is an ever-fixed mark,
That looks on tempests, and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.
Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle’s compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
   If this be error and upon me proved,
   I never writ, nor no man ever loved.
Sonnet 116 by William Shakespeare

Beatrice: O, God, that I were a man! I would eat his heart in the market-place.
Benedick: Hear me, Beatrice…
Beatrice: Talk with a man at a window. O, a proper saying.
Benedick: Nay, but, Beatrice…
Beatrice: Sweet Hero. She is wronged, she is slandered, she is undone.
Benedick: Beatrice.
Beatrice: Princes and counties. A goodly count. O, that I were a man for his sake! Or that I had any friend who would be a man for my sake! But manhood is melted into curtsies, valor into compliment, and men are only turned into tongues, and trim ones too. For he is now as valiant as Hercules who only tells a lie and swears it! I cannot be a man with wishing, therefore I will die a woman with grieving.

The fog comes
on little cat feet.

It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.
Fog by Carl Sandburg

Kay Lemp: Look.
Dr. Clinton Forrest, Jr.: Mmm-hmmm.
Kay Lemp: Right from the comissary.
Dr. Clinton Forrest, Jr.: Mmm. No, no. I don’t care for a sandwich, thanks.
Kay Lemp: It’s not for you, it’s for me. Know any more about nomoncoculosous?
Dr. Clinton Forrest, Jr.: Pneumoconiosis.
Kay Lemp: Do you?
Dr. Clinton Forrest, Jr.: No, no. Not much. It takes time. I make a little progress. Somebody else makes a little progress. Maybe a hundred years.
Kay Lemp: Well, anyway, you’ve just done a great job.
Dr. Clinton Forrest, Jr.: Oh, thanks.
Kay Lemp: Say, wouldn’t you like me to develop nomoncoconosous?
Dr. Clinton Forrest, Jr.: Pneumoconiosis.
Kay Lemp: Yeah, so you can have a handy guinea pig.
Dr. Clinton Forrest, Jr.: Hey, how did you know I liked milk instead of cream in my coffee?
Kay Lemp: I noticed at the house.
Dr. Clinton Forrest, Jr.: Yeah?
Kay Lemp: Nothing escapes me. Nothing and no one.
Dr. Clinton Forrest, Jr.: Ohhhh.
