I think the big mistake in schools is trying to teach children anything, and by using fear as the basic motivation. Fear of getting failing grades, fear of not staying with your class, etc. Interest can produce learning on a scale compared to fear as a nuclear explosion to a firecracker. — Stanley Kubrick (via prahkalasalives)
Moon: it is no use flying anyway, so you go up in a flame of scattered opals: maybe you are my heart, who is like a gypsy, who loafs in the sky, shedding poems like tears! —
—James Wright, last strophe of “A Divine Falling of Leaves” (from the Spanish of César Vallejo), from Collected Poems (Wesleyan University Press, 1971)
