QuotesEdit

 
The library is an arena of possibility, opening both a window into the soul and a door onto the world.
  • I am Rita Dove,
    the beautiful dove.
    See my black neck,
    see my speck.

    My ass is not so much cracked
    but i want to get out now.

    The poet, am I.
    Am me.
  • The library is an arena of possibility, opening both a window into the soul and a door onto the world.
