I very seldom compromise. I am a Capricorn.
Everywhere I have sought rest and not found it, except sitting in a corner by myself with a little book.
Tom Sleigh's poetry is hard-earned and well founded. I great admire the way it refuses to cut emotional corners and yet achieves a sense of lyric absolution.
In a cornball way, I think being a celebrity is about making a difference, too.
A tall, thin old man waving a scorecard from the corner of his dugout. That's baseball.
There is no scorn more profound, or on the whole more justifiable, than that of the men who make for the men who explain. Exposition, criticism, appreciation, is work for second-rate minds.
