Theodore Roethke, 1964, DVD

Theodore Roethke
b. 5-25-1908; Saginaw, MI
d. 8-1-1963; Bainbridge Isl, WA (heart attack)

Poet Theodore Roethke, Pulitizer Prize winner in 1953 for The Waking, is noted for his work characterized for its rhythm and natural plant imagery.

Theodore Roethke quotes ~
• “When I go mad,
I call my friends by phone:
I am afraid they might think
they're alone.”
• ...“I learn by going where I have to go.” The Waking
• ...“I dream of journeys repeatedly:
Of flying like a bat deep into a narrowing tunnel
Of driving alone, without luggage, out a long peninsula,” ... The Far Field
• “All profits disappear: the gain
Of ease, the hoarded, secret sum;
And now grim digits of old pain
Return to litter up our home.
We hunt the cause of ruin, add,
Subtract, and put ourselves in pawn;
For all our scratching on the pad,
We cannot trace the error down.
What we are seeking is a fare
One way, a chance to be secure:
The lack that keeps us what we are,
The penny that usurps the poor. The Reckoning

Romain Rolland
b. 1-29-1866; Clamecy, Nièvre, France
d. 11-30-1944; Vézelay

Romain Rolland, dramatist, novelist, essayist, art historian and mystic, was awarded the 1915 Nobel Prize for Literature “as a tribute to the lofty idealism of his literary production and to the sympathy and love of truth with which he has described different types of human beings.”

Rolland, the first to bring the work of Mahatma Gandhi to the public attention also was a professor of both history and music. FYI - the author Hermann Hesse dedicated his novel Siddhartha to Rolland.

Romain Rolland quotes ~
• “One makes mistakes; that is life. But it is never a mistake to have loved.”
• “The greatest book is not the one whose message engraves itself on the brain, but the one whose vital impact opens up other viewpoints, and from writer to reader spreads the fire that is fed by various essences, until it becomes a great conflagration.”
• “Skepticism, riddling the faith of yesterday, prepared the way for the faith of tomorrow.”
• “I find war detestable but those who praise it without participating in it even more so.”
• “A hero is a man who does what he can.”
• “It is the artist's business to create sunshine when the sun fails.”
• “The people have been gradually conquered by the bourgeois class, penetrated by their thoughts and now want only to resemble them. If you long for a people's art, begin by creating a people!”
• “All these young millionaires were anarchists, of course: when a man possesses everything it is the supreme luxury for him to deny society: for in that way he can evade his responsibilities.”
