"I’m going to invent a rival poet, or perhaps two, who will gradually become much better than me—then the people who resent me for one reason or another, will line up to support one of my rivals (i.e. me)." Ted Hughes • The American Reader

"[T]he older you get, the more artificial it all seems." Joe Wenderoth • BOMB Magazine

"Nobody would wish to have cancer, yet it undeniably brought things to my life that were, to my great surprise, valuable." Elise Partridge • The Puritan
