    The replacements are all like that. Not even old enough to carry a pack. All they know how to do is die.
    Maxwell Anderson (1888–1959)

    I have always rebelled against the unadorned, the unbefitting, the unawakened, the unresisting, the undesirable, the unplanned, the unshapely, the uncommitted, the unattempted—all leading to the unintended. I believe in the unsubmissive, the unfaltering, the unassailable, the irresistible, the unbelievable—in other words, in an art of life.
    —Margaret Anderson (1886–1973)

    Gin a body meet a body
    Flyin’ through the air,
    Gin a body hit a body,
    Will it fly? and where?
    —James Clerk Maxwell (1831–1879)
