"What I dread is this: that you'll be understood
Only by someone whose smile is helpless,
By someone who's lost.
What anguish--to search for the right word,
To lift sick eyelids,
And with lime-corroded blood
Gather night grasses for an alien tribe."
-- Osip Mandelshtam, The Eyesight of Wasps

"We don't tan, but we don't burn, either."
--Chiana, "Natural Election"

"'Cause you never can tell
What goes on down below!
This pool might be bigger
Than you or I know!"
-- Dr. Seuss, McElligot's Pool

"Set me aflame, and cast me free.
Away, you wretched world of tethers."
-- VNV Nation, "Solitary"

...and that's quite enough for now.
