"Words are alive, half wild and imperfectly domesticated. They are quiet and gentle in their ways. At night words overthrow our civilization. Poets let words play. Their magic is due to their living freely among things. Men with dictionaries are murderous of words." Edward Thomas.
"Look, I really don’t want to wax philosophic, but I will say that if you’re alive, you’ve got to flap your arms and legs, you’ve got to jump around a lot, you’ve got to make a lot of noise, because life is the very opposite of death" Mel Brooks
