Thank you for everything you taught us, Professor Keating.

Rest in peace, O’ captain.

The passing of anyone is a dark time for those who knew them, the sadness is more poignant when that passing is brought by their own hand, and the loss of someone who brought so much joy to so many in this way feels even sharper and more jagged and painful. Thank you for staying as long as you could.

“I can answer, only for myself, that poetry is the most important thing. The birth of a novel begins with a poem.”

—   Günter Grass (via theparisreview)

“The aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, it moves again.”

—   William Faulkner (via officialsouthernproper)

“One does not want a poem to serve anything; the liberating god of poetry does not endorse servitude.”

—   A. R. Ammons (via theparisreview)
