115826. I take my vote as a salute to the little guy, the one who doesn’t hit 500 home runs. I was one of the guys that did all they could to win. I’m proud of my stats, but I don’t think I ever got on for. – Joe Morgan

115827. No, I don’t want you to draw any conclusion. I want you to listen to what I just said. – Joe Morgan

115837. The great watershed of modern poetry is French, more than English. – Robert Morgan

115838. One of the most powerful devices is to distort time, to go from human time to atomic time, geologic time. Sometimes you can actually accomplish that, with one unexpected word choice. – Robert Morgan

115850. The decision to write in prose instead of poetry is made more by the readers than by writers. Almost no one is interested in reading narrative in verse. – Robert Morgan

115860. Young writers find their first audience in little magazines, and experimental writers find their only audience there. – Robert Morgan

115862. I tell students they will know they are getting somewhere when a scene is so painful they can just barely bring themselves to write about it. A writer has to draw blood. – Robert Morgan

115864. I encourage students to pursue an idea far enough so they can see what the cliches and stereotypes are. Only then do they begin to hit pay dirt. – Robert Morgan

115866. Neither of my parents has been very sensitive about my writing. – Robert Morgan

115871. I considered going to film school; I took a course in film and was very interested in filmmaking as well as film writing. – Robert Morgan

115872. I did not have a very literary background. I came to poetry from the sciences and mathematics, and also through an interest in Japanese and Chinese poetry in translation. – Robert Morgan

115873. I don’t think American poetry has gotten any better in the past 35 years. Oddly enough, creative writing programs seem to have been good for fiction, and I would not have predicted that. – Robert Morgan

115874. I don’t think the creative writing industry has helped American poetry. – Robert Morgan

115875. I have taught students from the New York City area so long I have a special affinity and rapport with them. It surprises me sometimes that there are students from anywhere else. – Robert Morgan

115876. I learned to impersonate the kind of person that talks about poetry. It comes from teaching, I think. – Robert Morgan

115877. A poem in form still has to have voice, gesture, a sense of discovery, a metaphoric connection, as any poetry does. – Robert Morgan

115878. In the best fiction, the language itself can become almost invisible. – Robert Morgan

115879. Maybe the example of Southern fiction writing has been so powerful that Southern poets have sort of keyed themselves to that. – Robert Morgan

115880. It was less a literary thing than a linguistic, philosophical preoccupation… discovering how far you can go with language to create immediate, elementary experience. – Robert Morgan

115881. I don’t think poetry is something that can be taught. We can encourage young writers, but what you can’t teach them is the very essence of poetry. – Robert Morgan

115882. In the late 60s and early 70s, I did get interested in voices, and in narration and embodying the voice, making the poem sound like a real person talking. – Robert Morgan

115883. I love chapbooks. They’re in some ways the ideal form in which to publish and read poems. You can read 19 poems in a way you can’t sit down and read 60 to 70 pages of poems. – Robert Morgan

115884. If people associate me with a region, that’s fine with me. – Robert Morgan

115885. If a poem is not memorable, there’s probably something wrong. One of the problems of free verse is that much of the free verse poetry is not memorable. – Robert Morgan

115886. I love to compare different time frames. Poetry can evoke the time of the subject. By a very careful choice of words you can evoke an era, completely throw the poem into a different time scale. – Robert Morgan

115887. I think that it’s more likely that in my 60s and 70s I will be writing poetry rather than fiction. – Robert Morgan

115888. I seem to keep returning to my father in poems because his personality was so extreme, so driven. He did everything to excess. – Robert Morgan

115889. I love to create interesting textures with language. You can do it as long as it seems like a discovery. – Robert Morgan

115901. We’re not inherently anything but human. – Robin Morgan

115902. Let’s put one lie to rest for all time: the lie that men are oppressed, too, by sexism-the lie that there can be such a thing as men’s liberation groups. – Robin Morgan

115903. Legitimate revolution must be led by, made by those who have been most oppressed: black, brown, yellow, red, and white women-with men relating to that the best they can. – Robin Morgan

115904. Knowledge is power. Information is power. The secreting or hoarding of knowledge or information may be an act of tyranny camouflaged as humility. – Robin Morgan

115905. It isn’t until you begin to fight in your own cause that you become really committed to winning and become a genuine ally of other people struggling for their freedom. – Robin Morgan

115906. In the long run, Women’s Liberation will of course free men-but in the short run it’s going to COST men a lot of privilege, which no one gives up willingly or easily. – Robin Morgan

115907. I feel that man-hating is an honorable and viable political act, that the oppressed have a right to class-hatred against the class that is oppressing them. – Robin Morgan

115908. I claim that rape exists any time sexual intercourse occurs when it has not been initiated by the woman, out of her own genuine affection and desire. – Robin Morgan

115913. The stammer was a way of telling the world that he was not like others, a way of expressing his singularity. – Ted Morgan

115914. For each chromosome contributed by the sperm there is a corresponding chromosome contributed by the egg, there are two chromosomes of each kind, which together constitute a pair. – Thomas Hunt Morgan

115915. One of the most amazing developments in the history of biology. – Thomas Hunt Morgan

115916. The egg of every species of animal or plant carries a definite number of bodies called chromosomes. The sperm carries the same number. Consequently, when the sperm unites with the egg, the fertilized egg will contain the double number of chromosomes. – Thomas Hunt Morgan

115924. Actually, there was another band where we were three girls, around ’84 when I met John Zorn, called Sunset Chorus. It was just bass and drums and guitar- we didn’t make any records but we played a lot of different clubs in New York. – Ikue Mori

115925. With a rock band, you play the same things over and over and over. – Ikue Mori

115926. The way I create music is maybe like a painting, to compose in a more visual way. Basically it’s the music that I want to hear- that’s my inspiration and bottom line. I just try to get ideas from books, movies, paintings. – Ikue Mori

115927. The most important thing is that it’s much more fun to play in a band than to be in an audience in a club. That’s the main thing I think, that you can do it. – Ikue Mori

115929. So now I don’t have time to practice drums. It’s been five years since I’ve touched the drums. – Ikue Mori

115930. Mars is really different, into art. Lydia Lunch is more energy. James Chance is more commercial in a different way, in funk and jazz. They were all doing original things, trying to create their own sound and music. I think they’re all great. – Ikue Mori

115932. I’m interested in stories and the dark side of peoples’ minds. – Ikue Mori

115933. I still think that I’m playing instruments, not just pushing buttons and there it goes. It’s interactive and alive with the sound and the manipulation and it plays like instruments. – Ikue Mori

115934. I really didn’t intend to be a musician when I left Japan. – Ikue Mori

115935. I got tired of different drum sounds so you buy different effects for more manipulation. – Ikue Mori

115936. I always wanted to get out of Tokyo and in 1977, New York seemed like the most interesting place to visit. I didn’t intend to live here- I just wanted to get out and see what was happening. I just happened to stay here then. – Ikue Mori

115937. Come to think of it, the way I play is like a drum machine- very mechanical. – Ikue Mori

115938. Blood and death. That moves me. – Ikue Mori

115939. Because it’s dance music, you can’t really have a lot of changing in there. It’s really not for me because there’s too much repetition. I like more diversity. – Ikue Mori
