    The first tool I step on
    Turned into a weapon.
    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)

    The waste of moments sleeping,
    The waste of pleasure weeping,
    By denying and ignoring
    The waste of nations warring.
    —Robert Frost (1874–1963)
