John Berger, A Painter of Our Time -- " . . . when I do not draw, my mind becomes overcrowded and the crowd accuses."
Yitzhak Laor, commenting on his poem "He'arat Shulayim (Footnote)" -- " . . . beyond the urge to shout 'see, here the blood worship begins', the poem's musicality is most important, here . . . is the place in which I protect my own voice (I think), and everything else is given to others, as a gift." (translated with permission from the author )
Philip Levine, "Blue and Blue" ". . . overhead the sky darkened into a blue so deep I thought the world would break into fire."
