„Moment to moment, we can grow, if we can bring ourselves to meet the moment with our lives.“

—  Muriel Rukeyser poet and political activist 1913 - 1980

Zdroj: The Life of Poetry (1949), Chapter One : The Fear of Poetry
Kontext: Poetry is, above all, an approach to the truth of feeling, and what is the use of truth!
How do we use feeling?
How do we use truth! However confused the scene of our life appears, however torn we may be who now do face that scene, it can be faced, and we can go on to be whole.
If we use the resources we now have, we and the world itself may move in one fullness. Moment to moment, we can grow, if we can bring ourselves to meet the moment with our lives.

„I call the beginning of death the whole course of life, beginning with our birth, from which point we commence to die, and each moment of every day brings us nearer to our end.“

—  Stefano Guazzo Italian writer 1530 - 1593

Chiamo principio della morte tutto il corso della vita cominciando al nostro nascimento, dal quale cominciamo a morire, e per momenti di tempo andiamo ogni giorno al nostro fine.
Della Morte, p. 529.
