The finest workers in stone are not copper or steel tools, but the gentle touches of air and water working at their leisure with a liberal allowance of time.

in every block of marble i see a statue as plain as though it stood before me, shaped and perfect in attitude and action. i have only to hew away the rough walls that imprison the lovely apparition to reveal it to the other eyes as mine see it.

The only problem with seeing too much is that it makes you insane.

All the wild horses
Tethered with tears in their eyes
May no man's touch ever tame
May no man's reins ever chain you

Rebel rebel, you've torn your dress
Rebel rebel, your face is a mess

Hot tramp, i love you so!

Good Old Rebel
Major Innes Randolph (J.E.B. Stuart's staff.)
Collier’s Weekly, 1914

Oh, I'm a good old Rebel,
Now that's just what I am;
For this "fair land of Freedom"
I do not care a damn.
I'm glad I fit against it-
I only wish we'd won.
And I don't want no pardon
For anything I've done.

I hates the Constitution,
This “great Republic” too;
I hates the Freedman Buro
In uniforms of blue
I hates that nasty eagle,
With all his brag and fuss;
And the lyin', thievin' Yankees
I hates' em wuss and wuss.

I hates the Yankee nation,
And everything they do;
I hates the Declaration
Of Independence too.
I hates the “glorious Union,”
'Tis dripping with our blood;
And I hates the Union banner-
I fit it all I could.

I followed old Marse Robert
For four years near about.
Got wounded in three places,
And starved at Point Lookout.
I cotch the roomatism
A-campin' in the snow,
But I killed a chance of Yankees-
And I'd like to kill some mo'.

Three hundred thousand Yankees
Is stiff iin Southern dust;
We got three hundred thousand
Befo' they conquered us.
They died of Southern fever
And Southern steel and shot;
And I wish it was three million
Instead of what we got.

I can't take up my musket
And fight' em now no mo',
But I ain't a-goin'to love' em,
Now that is sartin sho';
And I don't want no pardon
For what I was and am;
And I won't be reconstructed,
And I do not give a damn.

I'm at war with myself over which to post, so take your pick:

The painful warrior famous for fight,
After a thousand victories, once foil'd,
Is from the books of honor razed quite,
And all the rest forgot for which he toil'd.
~William Shakespeare


My views and feelings are in favor of the abolition of war--and I hope it is practicable, by improving the mind and morals of society, to lessen the disposition to war; but of its abolition I despair.
~Thomas Jefferson

earth loves the rain, the proud sky loves to give it. the whole world loves to create futurity. i say then to the world, 'i share your love.' is this not the source of the phrase, 'this loves to happen'?

And what's romance? Usually, a nice little tale where you have everything As You Like It, where rain never wets your jacket and gnats never bite your nose and it's always daisy-time.
