1874 - 1963
American poet, winner of the Pulitzer Prize (1937) for A Further Place
|The best things and the best people rise out of their separateness; I'm against a homogenized society because I want the cream to rise.|
|A liberal is a man too broadminded to take his own side in a quarrel.|
|For, dear me why abandon a belief, Merely because it ceases to be true? Cling to it long enough, and not a doubt It will turn true again, for so it goes.|
from "The Black Cottage"
|Most of the change we think we see in life is due to truths being in and out of favor.|
