Wilfred Owen - Helen Keller - Seneca - Harry Houdini - Jasper Johns - David P Gardner -
Our hearts ache, in the merciless iced east winds that knive us ... The poignant misery of dawn begins to grow ...
Tonight, this frost will fasten on this mud and us,
Shrivelling many hands, puckering foreheads crisp.
The burying-party, picks and shovels in shaking grasp,
Pause over half-known faces. All their eyes are ice.
But nothing happens. Wilfred Owen
Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold. Helen Keller
Constant exposure to dangers will breed contempt for them. Seneca
It is still an open question, however, as to what extent exposure really injures a performer. Harry Houdini
I don’t want my work to be an exposure of my feelings. Jasper Johns
We learn simply by the exposure of living, and what we learn most natively is the tradition in which we live. David P Gardner
