Why do we have to read poetry?…Read it and you’ll know why. If you still don’t know, read it again. –Marilyn Robinson


Let me at least disappear into the writing I do. It should mean nothing special to me, nor harm my recollection. The work could be a prayer; its results should not concern me. – Thomas Merton


We have no need to contrive and dabble at the ‘future of the human race’; we have the same pressing need that we have always had—to love, care for, and teach our children. – Wendell Berry
