Next day, with the courage you find you have when there is nothing more to lose, she got in touch.
-Thomas Pynchon, from The Crying of Lot 49
You get a word from the past…and you pull it into the present in order to go to the future. It has something to do with thinking and not losing the music while you think. Nothing is lost or obscure.
-Alice Notley, from “Poets & Writers”
These changes have roots of hope in them. Besides, they cannot now get far away from each other, and they see none else of their own kind; they must at last grow weary of their mutual repugnance, and begin to love one another! For love, not hate, is deepest.
–George MacDonald, from Lilith
It shall be a Jubilee for you; and each of you shall return to his possession, and each of you shall return to his family.
