    The road became a channel running flocks
    Of glossy birds like ripples over rocks.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    The shifting islands! who would not be willing that his house should be undermined by such a foe! The inhabitant of an island can tell what currents formed the land which he cultivates; and his earth is still being created or destroyed. There before his door, perchance, still empties the stream which brought down the material of his farm ages before, and is still bringing it down or washing it away,—the graceful, gentle robber!
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    This is The End—of the Beginning.
    Rip Van Ronkel, and Robert A. Heinlein (1907–1988)

    Trust him to have his bitter politics
    Against his unacquaintances the rich
    Who sleep in houses of their own, though mortgaged.
    Conservatives, they don’t know what to save.
    —Robert Frost (1874–1963)
