So I went from day to day
Tho my life was in a rut

The joy of life consists in the exercise of one's energies, continual growth, constant change, the enjoyment of every new experience. To stop means simply to die. The eternal mistake of mankind is to set up an attainable ideal.

A. Crowley

GALVIN: "You know, so much of the time we're lost. We say,"Please, God, tell us what is right. Tell us what's true. There is no justice. The rich win, the poor are powerless." We become tired of hearing people lie. After a time we become dead. A little dead. We start thinking of ourselves as victims. And we become victims. And we become weak and doubt ourselves, and doubt our institutions, and doubt our beliefs. We say for example, "The law is a sham there is no law I was a fool for having believed there was.""

Vice came in always at the door of necessity, not at the door of inclination. -- Moll Flanders

in flanders fields the poppies blow
between the crosses, row on row,
that mark our place; and in the sky
the larks, still bravely singing, fly
scarce heard amid the guns below.

we are the dead. short days ago
we lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
loved and were loved, and now we lie
in flanders fields.

take up our quarrel with the foe:
to you from failing hands we throw
the torch; be yours to hold it high.
if ye break faith with us who die
we shall not sleep,
though poppies grow
in flanders fields.

"Out of the quarrel with others we make rhetoric;
out of the quarrel with ourselves we make poetry."

~William Butler Yeats

into my heart an air that kills
from yon far country blows:
what are those blue remembered hills,
what spires, what farms are those?

AE Housman and a Few Friends
Humbert Wolfe

When lads have done with labor
In Shropshire one will cry
“Let’s go and kill a neighbor!”
And t’others answer “Aye!”

So this one kills his cousins
And that one kills his dad
And, as they hang by dozens
At Ludlow, lad by lad,

Each of them one-and-twenty
All of them murderers,
The hangman mutters: “Plenty
Even for Housman’s verse.”
