    If we justify war, it is because all peoples always justify the traits of which they find themselves possessed, not because war will bear an objective examination of its merits.
    Ruth Benedict (1887–1948)

    For, brother, know that this is art, and you
    With a cold incautious sorrow stricken dumb,
    Have your own vanishing slit of light let through,
    Passionate as winter, where only a few may come:
    Not idiots in the street find out the lees
    In the last drink of dying Socrates.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    But see, the Virgin blest
    Hath laid her Babe to rest:
    Time is our tedious song should here have ending;
    Heaven’s youngest teemed star,
    Hath fixed her polished car,
    Her sleeping Lord with handmaid lamp attending;
    And all about the courtly stable,
    Bright-harnessed angels sit in order serviceable.
    John Milton (1608–1674)
