Pure

"A recurring ideal, I find, is that of simplicity  At times there comes the desire to write with great precision and clarity, words so simple and moving that they bring tears to the eyes." -R.S. Thomas

Now

"What is love? 'tis not hereafter,
Present mirth hath present laughter:
What's to come is still unsure.
In delay there lies no plenty,
Then come kiss me, sweet and twenty:
Youth's a stuff will not endure."
-Shakespeare

Early Mornings

"Awake the mind's hopeless so 
At a quarter to six I rise
And run 2 or 3 miles in
The pristine air of a dark
And windy winter morning
With light rain falling
And no sound but the pad
Of my sneakers on the asphalt
And the calls of the owls in
The cypress trees on Mesa Road
And when I get back you're
Still asleep under the warm covers
Because love is here to stay
It's another day and we're both still alive." -Tom Clark

Not Exactly Promising...

"The best work in literature is always done by those who do not depend on it for their daily bread and the highest form of literature, Poetry, brings no wealth to the singer ... Make some sacrifice for your art and you will be repair but ask of art to sacrifice herself for you and a bitter disappointment may come to you." -a recently discovered letter from Oscar Wilde to an aspiring writer.

Change

"Well, that was life. Gladness and pain...hope and fear...and change. Always change! You could not help it. You had to let the old go and take the new to your heart...learn to love it and then let it go in turn. Spring, lovely as it was, must yield to summer and summer lose itself in autumn. -Anne of Ingleside.

Fascination

"You would fall quite flat before her charm and personality ... she dresses quite atrociously. At first you think she is plain; then a sort of spiritual beauty imposes itself on you, and you find a fascination in watching her ... she is both detached and human, silent till she wants to say something, and then says it supremely well." -Vita Sackville-West's description of Virginia Woolf.

Subtle

"We had a conversation years ago," [Sally] Jenkins says. "I asked Pat if she was a feminist. And she said, 'No, I'm not a sign carrier.' And I said, 'Well, I know what you are -- you're a subversive.' And she said, 'That's exactly right.' I think Pat took the concept of athletics that was used to define confidence and excellence for men, and stole it and gave it to women." -an NPR story about legendary Tennessee basketball coach Pat Summitt and her struggle with Alzheimer's.
