    The fatal futility of Fact.
    —Henry James (1843–1916)

    How can I live among this gentle
    absolescent breed of heroes, and not weep?
    Unicorns, almost,
    for they are falling into two legends
    in which their stupidity and chivalry
    are celebrated. Each, fool and herb, will be an immortal.
    —Keith Douglas (1920–1944)
