    In bombers named for girls, we burned
    The cities we had learned about in school—
    Till our lives wore out; our bodies lay among
    The people we had killed and never seen.
    Randall Jarrell (1914–1965)

    I am often mad, but I would hate to be nothing but mad: and I think I would lose what little value I may have as a writer if I were to refuse, as a matter of principle, to accept the warming rays of the sun, and to report them, whenever, and if ever, they happen to strike me.
    —E.B. (Elwyn Brooks)
