    Stand close around,ye Stygian set,
    With Dirce in one boat convey’d,
    Or Charon, seeing, may forget
    That he is old, and she a shade.
    —Walter Savage Landor (1775–1864)

    From you, Ianthe, little troubles pass
    Like little ripples down a sunny river;
    —Walter Savage Landor (1775–1864)

    Of course I’m a black writer.... I’m not just a black writer, but categories like black writer, woman writer and Latin American writer aren’t marginal anymore. We have to acknowledge that the thing we call “literature” is more pluralistic now, just as society ought to be. The melting pot never worked. We ought to be able to accept on equal terms everybody from the Hassidim to Walter Lippmann, from the Rastafarians to Ralph Bunche.
    Toni Morrison (b. 1931)

    You seem to me as Dian in her orb,
    As chaste as is the bud ere it be blown;
    But you are more intemperate in your blood
    Than Venus, or those pampered animals
    That rage in savage sensuality.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
