The Open Road goes to the used-car lot.More Louis Simpson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Paranoia imposes its own vision on the external world; it differs from other kinds of visionary experience in that the paranoid wants others to share his view—even insists on it. Paranoia is very like poetic creativity. This accounts for my fascination with certain people in whom this state of mind was evident: �characters’ met by chance, whose words and gestures would haunt me for years until, finally, in a poem I was able to dispel them.More Louis Simpson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In my grandmother's house there was always chicken soup
And talk of the old country--mud and boards,
Poverty,
The snow falling down and necks of lovers.More Louis Simpson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The treasures of Cathay were never found.
In this America, this wilderness
Where the axe echoes with a lonely sound,
The generations labor to possess
And grave by grave we civilize the ground.More Louis Simpson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Being shelled is the main work of an infantry soldier, which no one talks about. Everyone has his own way of going about it. In general, it means lying face down and contracting your body into as small a space as possible.More Louis Simpson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
