POEM:Muriel Rukeyser: The Book of the Dead: The Dam (excerpt): … All power is saved, having no end. Rises / in the green season, in the sudden season / the white the budded / and the lost… learning its power, conquering boundaries, able to rise blind in revolts of tide, broken and sacrificed to flow resumed.
QUOTE: Frederick Lewis Donaldson: The Seven Social Sins are: Wealth without work. Pleasure without conscience. Knowledge without character. Commerce without morality. Science without humanity. Worship without sacrifice. Politics without principle.
