    Losing faith in your own singularity is the start of wisdom, I suppose; also the first announcement of death.
    Peter Conrad (b. 1948)

    Cole’s Hill was the scene of the secret night burials of those who died during the first year of the settlement. Corn was planted over their graves so that the Indians should not know how many of their number had perished.
    —For the State of Massachusetts, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    George Grosz (1893–1959)
