Faith fails against these fortresses:
Garlands of love,
Victor's laurels,
Wreaths for the dead.

Some ECW poet - Donne maybe?

And from the Bhagavad Gita, Siva says to Arjun:

The wise grieve not for those who live. And grieve not for those who die, for life and death shall pass away.

`Thou shalt not' is half the law of Ireland, and `Thou must' is the other half - P.H. Pearse -

...the wise have pitted the fool that hath striven ot give a life
In the world of time and space maong the bulks of actual things,
To a dream thatw as dreamed in the heart, and that only the heart could hold.
Oh wise men, riddle me this: what if the dream come true? - Pearse -

And this was delivered in a grand way on a BBC drama by an undercover cop; it really was classic, a subordinate female cop is trying to pick her up, when she says to her: "I don't mind being thought a dyke; but what bothers me is ya thinkin' I am a stupid dyke!" Go gyrl!!!

remarkable how many of us have quoted something from the Easter Rebellion; I agree with Bassen about the Foggy Dew but the line that gets me is "Britannia's sons with their long range guns." Lenin had the cruiser Aurora and won, Pearse and Connolly had nothing and lost the battle, till their ghosts won the war just a few years later. katlaughing, where can I get a book on Pearse's poetry? I have come to the Easter rebellion backward from friends who got me interested in James Joyce & then told me I had to understand Irish history to start to understand the Wake. . . should we start a separate thread here?

God said Abraham kill me a son, Abe said man you must be puttin' me on, God said no, Abe said what? God said you can do what you want Abe, but, Next time you see me comin, you'd better run. Abe said where ya want this killin' done, God said out on Highway 61. Bob Dylan

In the shade of an oak, down by the river, sat an old man and a boy, settin' sails, spinnin' tales, and fishin' for whales, with a lady that they both enjoy. Willie Nelson

Hey there brother, who you jivin' whith that Kozmic Debris? Frank Zappa

For you can't hang a man for killin' a woman, who's trying to steal your horse. Willie Nelson

My Head Hurts, my feet stink and I don't love Jesus, One of them mornings, musta been one of them nights. Jimmy Buffet

I've Gotta leave this town running, 'cause, Walkin's way too slow. Big Bill Broonzy

And yes, there's something you can send back to me, Spanish boots of Spanish leather. Bob Dylan

I'm sick of love, That I'm in the thick of it, This kind of love, I'm so sick of it Bob Dylan

Yeah I'll pay your cab fare home, you can even use my best cologne, Just don't be here in the morning when I wake up. The Faces

The women I've known I wouldn't let tie my shoes, They wouldn't give you the time of day. Unsure of author, performed by Rod Stewart. I was down there paintin' on the old wood shed when a can of black paint did fell on my head, I went down to rub and scrub, but I had to sit in back of the tub, cost a quarter, half price.

My telephone rang, it would not stop, It was President Kennedy callin' me up, he said my friend Bob whatta we need to make the country grow, I said my friend John, Bridgit Bardot, Anita Ekberg, Sophia Loren, the country'll grow. Bob Dylan

Now the rainman gave me two cures, Then he said, "Jump right in." The one was Texas medicine, The other was just railroad gin. An' like a fool I mixed them An' it strangled up my mind, An' now people just get uglier An' I have no sense of time. Oh, Mama, can this really be the end, To be stuck inside of Mobile With the Memphis blues again. Bob Dylan

Jazz is not dead...it just smells funny.

Is that a real poncho or a Sears poncho?

Most people wouldn't know good music if it came up and bit them in the ass. Frank Zappa

How's your new love I hope he's doing fine Heard you told him That you'd love him 'til the end of time Now that's the same thing, that you told me Seems like just the other day Gee, ain't it funny, how time slips away? Willie Nelson

I'm so Lonesome I could cry. Hank Williams

There's a lot of doctors that tell me That I'd better start to slowin' it down But there's more old drunks Than there are old doctors So I guess we'd better have another round Willie Nelson

The sun is filled with ice And gives no warmth at all The sky was never blue The stars are raindrops Searching for a place to fall And I never cared for you. More Willie

Just pretend I never happened And erase me from your mind You will not want to remember Any love as cold as mine. Yet more Willie Nelson

Look out man, I got the Madman blues. John Lee Hooker

I'd better stop now as I keep reminding myself of more.

Leej: Right you are (and wrong I was: "Twenty centuries of stony silence/have been vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle...). Yeats was a mystic who believed that history happened in two-millenia cycles, and that we were nearing the end of the Christian cycle. He was also a fascist sympathizer who believed that the "rough beast," fascism, was a good thing, because Christianity (or that aspect of it represented by "a rocking cradle") was too gentle to save civilization. Fascism/totalitarianism is certainly a rough beast, but fortunately not so indomitable as he believed. But there are certainly other rough beasts out there: nuclear and chemical and biological weapons, corporate power, virulent ethnic nationalism, uncontrolled "development" of natural resources, you name it; we got it. --seed

Hi, Pete. If you go here there are several books about him and some collections of his writings. What a brilliant mind and writer! I didn;t do that through the Mudcat link, so you mihgt want to actually go there that way, if you plan on buying anything; that way teh Mudcat will get a share of the proceeds and credit for sending someone their way.

A really good novel which is, I think, on the best seller lists is "1916" by Morgan Llwywelyn. She does a good job of blending the fiction with actual quoted material of teh real historical figures which are all cited. It's very well done.

Thanks for asking. I believe humankind comes up with soem of their best stuff in times such as that. No wonder we've all quoted from it a lot.

We must love one another or die. W. H. Auden

listen! there's a helluva good universe next door. let's go! --e.e.cummings

Or the whole poem:

pity this busy monster manunkind
not. progress is a comfortable disease:
your victim, death and life safely beyond,
plays with the bigness of his littleness.
electrons deify one razor blade
into a mountainrange; lenses extend
unwish through curving wherewhen
'til unwish returns on its unself. a world of made
is not a world of born. pity poor flesh
and trees, poor stars and stone, but never this
fine specimen of hypermagical
ultraomnipotence. we doctors know
a hopeless case if...listen!there's a
helluva good universe next door. let's go.

again from memory--likely errors in line breaks and punctuation

like the second coming, many great lines: I particularly like "progress is a comfortable disease"

'getting high on the beer and the atmosphere of a good time' 'cigerette smoke and bad jokes hang in the air' 'all the songs we hate, but we sing them anyway.' all from 'Ginnie' by Fairport Convention. a song that means a lot to me as it so perfectly describes the best possible times and reminds me of sitting listening to my brother playing/singing it....

'she'd feel alone in a crowded room. cry when ever she heard a happy tune' - 'Julie' by the Levellers, another great song. and perhaps the greatest of all the Levellers songs -

'theres only one way of life, and thats your own.'

oh yes, and for the cynic in you... 'every silver lining has a cloud.' ! - 'smile' by the Supernaturals, that one line redeems what would otherwise be a rather naff band!
