„Rome cut off the heads of Christians and they continued to reappear one way or another. Something similar happens with Marxists.“

„Felicity is a continual progress of the desire from one object to another, the attaining of the former being still but the way to the latter.“

—  Thomas Hobbes English philosopher, born 1588 1588 - 1679
Context: Felicity is a continual progress of the desire from one object to another, the attaining of the former being still but the way to the latter. The cause whereof is that the object of man's desire is not to enjoy once only, and for one instant of time, but to assure forever the way of his future desire. And therefore the voluntary actions and inclinations of all men tend not only to the procuring, but also to the assuring of a contented life, and differ only in the way, which ariseth partly from the diversity of passions in diverse men, and partly from the difference of the knowledge or opinion each one has of the causes which produce the effect desired. The First Part, Chapter 11, p. 47.

„There are ways in which poetry reaches the people who, for one reason or another, are walled off from it.“

—  Muriel Rukeyser poet and political activist 1913 - 1980
Context: There are ways in which poetry reaches the people who, for one reason or another, are walled off from it. Arriving in diluted forms, serving to point up an episode, to give to a climax an intensity that will carry it without adding heaviness, to travel toward the meaning of a work of graphic art, nevertheless poetry does arrive. And in the socially accepted forms, we may see the response and the fear, expressed without reserve, since they are expressed during enjoyment which has all the sanctions of society. Close to song, poetry reaches us in the music we admit: the radio songs that flood our homes, the juke-boxes, places where we drink and eat, the songs of work for certain occupations, the stage-songs we hear as ticketed audience. p. 109
