The Eclectic One

…Because labels are a poor substitute for thinking

Quote of the Day

Posted by Bill Nance on August 28, 2008

Pile the bodies high at Austerlitz and Waterloo. Shovel them under and let me work- I am the grass; I cover all.

And pile them high at Gettysburg And pile them high at Ypres and Verdun.  Shovel them under and let me do my work.

Two years, ten years, and passengers ask the conductor: What place is this? Where are we now?

I am the grass. Let me work. -Carl Sandberg, Grass
