    Fowls in the frith,

    To me, nothing can be more important than giving children books, It’s better to be giving books to children than drug treatment to them when they’re 15 years old. Did it ever occur to anyone that if you put nice libraries in public schools you wouldn’t have to put them in prisons?
    Fran Lebowitz (20th century)

    Reptilian green the wrinkled throat,
    Green as a bough of yew the beard;
    He bent his head, and so I smote;
    Yvor Winters (1900–1968)

    Navajo men and boys have an odd way of showing their friendship. When two young men meet at the trading post, a “Sing”, or a dance they greet each other, inquire about the health of their respective families, then stand silently some ten or fifteen minutes while one feels the other’s arms, shoulders, and chest.
    —Administration in the State of Ariz, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)
