Letters

"I hold, like Eric Gill, that letters are things, not pictures of things."

"Humans have a proven ability to out-talk and out-eat everything else on the planet, at least in the short-term, and some people seem immensely proud of that. Why I'm not quite sure."

Warped on the earth's loom
and dyed in the thought of the gods,
a man should add beauty and strength to his city.
But he is no citizen whatsoever
if he is tied to the ugly by fear or by pride
or by greed or by love of disorder - or order.


Antigone excerpt translated by... and quotes from... Robert Bringhurst, as below
