    They are preparing to begin again:
    Problems, new pennant up the flagpole
    In a predicated romance.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    The great God endows His children variously. To some he gives intellect—and they move the earth. To some he allots heart—and the beating pulse of humanity is theirs. But to some He gives only a soul, without intelligence—and these, who never grow up, but remain always His children, are God’s fools, kindly, elemental, simple, as if from His palette the Artist of all had taken one color instead of many.
    —Mary Roberts Rinehart (1876–1958)
