I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars. — Og Mandino
"I can't tell you where a poem comes from, what it is, or what it is for: nor can any other man. The reason I can't tell you is that the purpose of a poem is to go past telling, to be recognized by burning."
— A. R. Ammons, American Poet, died February 25, 2001
