“That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.”
— Christopher Hitchens
“I don’t know [why we’re here]. People sometimes say to me, ‘Why don’t you admit that the humming bird, the butterfly, the Bird of Paradise are proof of the wonderful things produced by Creation?’ And I always say, well, when you say that, you’ve also got to think of a little boy sitting on a river bank, like here, in West Africa, that’s got a little worm, a living organism, in his eye and boring through the eyeball and is slowly turning him blind. The Creator God that you believe in, presumably, also made that little worm. Now I personally find that difficult to accommodate…”
— David Attenborough
“I thought of just your face
Relaxed, and floated into space”
-Blue October, Into the Ocean
“I met a girl who sang the blues
And I asked her for some happy news
But she just smiled and turned away…”
Don McLean, American Pie
“My education was the liberty I had to read indiscriminately and all the time, with my eyes hanging out.”
”When one burns one’s bridges, what a very nice fire it makes.”
”Somebody’s boring me. I think it’s me.”
“A good poem is a contribution to reality. The world is never the same once a good poem has been added to it. A good poem helps to change the shape of the universe, helps to extend everyone’s knowledge of himself and the world around him.”
~“And I rose
In rainy autumn
And walked abroad in a shower of all my days…”
~“Time held me green and dying
Though I sang in my chains like the sea.”
~“Especially when the October wind
With frosty fingers punishes my hair,
Caught by the crabbing sun I walk on fire
And cast a shadow crab upon the land,
By the sea’s side, hearing the noise of birds,
Hearing the raven cough in winter sticks,
My busy heart who shudders as she talks
Sheds the syllabic blood and drains her words.”
Norman Kingsley Mailer was an American novelist, journalist, essayist, playwright, activist, film-maker and actor. In a career spanning over six decades, Mailer had 11 best-selling books, at least one in each of the seven decades after World War II—more than any other post-war American writer. Wikipedia
