I got some new underwear the other day. Well, new to me. ~ Emo Philips
2005
If the stars should appear one night in a thousand years, how would men believe and adore; and preserve for many generations the remembrance of the city of God which had been shown! But every night come out these envoys of beauty, and light the universe with their admonishing smile. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson (born 25 May 1803)
2006
They reckon ill who leave me out;
When me they fly, I am the wings;
I am the doubter and the doubt,
And I the hymn the Brahmin sings.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson (born 25 May 1803)
2007
Is pain a promise? I was schooled in pain,
And found out what I could of all desire;
I weep for what I'm like when I'm alone
In the deep center of the voice and fire.

I know the motion of the deepest stone.
Each one's himself, yet each one's everyone.

~ Theodore Roethke ~

Death was not. I lived in a simple drowse:
Hands and hair moved through a dream of wakening blossoms.
Rain sweetened the cave and the dove still called;
The flowers leaned on themselves, the flowers in hollows;
And love, love sang toward.
~ Theodore Roethke (born May 25, 1908)

  • I'll seek my own meekness.
    What grace I have is enough.
    The lost have their own pace.
    The stalks ask something else.
    What the grave says,
    The nest denies.
    ~ Theodore Roethke

The moon draws back its waters from the shore.
By the lake's edge, I see a silver swan,
And she is what I would. In this light air,
Lost opposites bend down —
Sing of that nothing of which all is made,
Or listen into silence, like a god.

~ Theodore Roethke


I have gone into the waste lonely places
Behind the eye.
~ Theodore Roethke


God bless the roots! — Body and soul are one!
The small become the great, the great the small;
The right thing happens to the happy man.
~ Theodore Roethke


I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.
I feel my fate in what I cannot fear.
I learn by going where I have to go.

~ Theodore Roethke ~
