    “A sigh for every so many breath,
    And for every so many sigh a death.
    That’s what I always tell my wife
    Is the multiplication table of life.”
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    I was afraid the waking arm would break
    From the loose earth and rub against his eyes
    A fist of trees, and the whole country tremble
    In the exultant labor of his rise;
    Donald Hall (b. 1928)

    The only people who treasure systems are those whom the whole truth evades, who want to catch it by the tail. A system is just like truth’s tail, but the truth is like a lizard. It will leave the tail in your hand and escape; it knows that it will soon grow another tail.
    Ivan Sergeevich Turgenev (1818–1883)

    All voting is a sort of gaming, like checkers or backgammon, with a slight moral tinge to it, a playing with right and wrong, with moral questions; and betting naturally accompanies it. The character of the voters is not staked. I cast my vote, perchance, as I think right; but I am not vitally concerned that right should prevail. I am willing to leave it to the majority.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    They were not on the table with their elbows.
    They were not sleeping in the shelves of bunks.
    I saw no men there and no bones of men there.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
