Famous quotes containing the words karl shapiro, shapiro and/or karl:

    One day beside some flowers near his nose
    He will be thinking, When will I look at it?
    And pain, still in the middle distance, will reply,
    At what? and he will know it’s gone,
    O where! and begin to tremble and cry.
    Karl Shapiro (b. 1913)

    But with exquisite breathing you smile, with satisfaction of love,
    And I touch you again as you tick in the silence and settle in
    sleep.
    —Karl Shapiro (b. 1913)

    The greatest horrors in the history of mankind are not due to the ambition of the Napoleons or the vengeance of the Agamemnons, but to the doctrinaire philosophers. The theories of the sentimentalist Rousseau inspired the integrity of the passionless Robespierre. The cold-blooded calculations of Karl Marx led to the judicial and business-like operations of the Cheka.
    Aleister Crowley (1875–1947)
