    Dust fanned in scraped puffs from the earth
    Between his arms, and blood turned his face inside out,
    To demonstrate its suppleness
    Of veins, as he perfected his role.
    James Dickey (b. 1923)

    Smitten as we are with the vision of social righteousness, a God indifferent to everything but adulation, and full of partiality for his individual favorites, lacks an essential element of largeness.
    —William James (1842–1910)

    I saw for a blazing moment
    The great grassy world from both sides,
    Man and beast in the round of their need,
