It seems to me that readers sometimes make the genesis
of a poem more mysterious than it is (by that I perhaps mean,
think of it as something outside their own experience).
- James Schuyler

In the past I have declined to comment on my own work:
because,
it seems to me, a poem is what it is;
because a poem is itself a definition,
and to try to redefine it is to be apt to falsify it;
and because the author is the person least able to
consider his work objectively.
- James Schuyler

However, intention needn't enter in,
and if a reader sees things in a religious way,
and the work is dogmatically acceptable,
then I don't see why it should not be interpreted in that way,
as well as in others.

is a greater gift than a steak dinner served brusquely.

In many ways, it is easier to be a good giver than a good receiver.
The giver chooses the gift and the timing.
More important, societal and religious traditions
tend to elevate the status of giver and lower the status of receiver.
When the Bible (Acts 20:32-35) speaks of it being
more blessed to give than to receive,
I believe that a better translation might be
"take" rather than "receive," as the context
of that passage is "coveting."
Certainly there is nothing blessed about coveting,
stealing, begging, or demanding,
however the skill of graciously receiving a freely offered gift
is another matter entirely.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Each of us holds a different image of God.
There are as many perspectives on
the nature of God as there are people.
However much any of us may choose to argue,
or to fight and kill, for our point of view,
the nature of God is an unanswerable question.
Perhaps there is a specific answer,
that we will never learn - in this lifetime.
Perhaps the nature of God is so complex and multifaceted
that each view of God describes an aspect of the complex whole.
Or perhaps the nature of God is actually defined by our beliefs.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

to err like any other fellow mortal.
I own, however, that I have humility enough
to confess my errors and to retrace my steps.
- Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi

A conservative is a man with two perfectly good legs who,
however, has never learned how to walk forward.
- Franklin D. Roosevelt

People are going to behave however the social norms permit,
and beyond that.
- Max Cannon

Everyone has an opinion on many subjects
and is ready to share those opinions -
labeling them as "truth."
Sometimes it is relatively easy
to filter out these opinions.
Upon hearing an ad for the latest
weight-loss powder on late-night TV,
our skepticism leaps to our defense.
However, if we have heard the same opinion for years
from our parents, friends,
government officials, or religious leaders,
we are more likely to believe without questioning
than to raise our filter of skepticism
and ask the hard questions.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

However painful it may be for me to accept this conclusion,
I am obliged to state it: for the black man there is only one destiny.
