“To live and die amongst foreigners may seem less absurd than to live persecuted or tortured by ones fellow countrymen.... But to emigrate is always to dismantle the centre of the world, and so to move into a lost, disoriented one of fragments.”

It is like obedience to some external authority; any clear way, though it lead to death, is mentally preferable to the tangle of uncertainty.”
—Charles Horton Cooley (18641929)
“I have felt darkness lead me by the hand
Over the hill to greet the singing dawn....”
—Allen Tate (18991979)
“What is this that roareth thus?
Can it be a Motor Bus?
Yes, the smell and hideous hum
Indicat Motorem Bum ...
Domine, defende nos Contra hos Motores Bos!”
—Alfred Godley (18561925)
