“This world is run by people who know how to do things. They know how things work. They are equipped. Up there, theres a layer of people who run everything. But wewere just peasants. We dont understand whats going on, and we cant do anything.”
—Doris Lessing (b. 1919)
“In poorer lands
No one touches the water of life.
It has no taste
And though it refreshes absolutely
It is a cup that must also pass
Gets some advantage....”
—John Ashbery (b. 1927)
“Reason now gazes above the realm of the dark but warm feelings as the Alpine peaks do above the clouds. They behold the sun more clearly and distinctly, but they are cold and unfruitful.”
—G.C. (Georg Christoph)
