Morgan Llywelyn

  • Dreams can be relentless tyrants.

  • ... happy women get softer and rounder.

  • The one power a man has that cannot be stripped from him is the power to do nothing ...

  • Wine could become a place rather than a beverage ...

  • ... teaching meant for the hands enters most easily through the eyes.

  • You have gone down your new road without me ...

  • Everywhere he looked he saw new shoots of heartbreakingly tender green; grass and bud and leaf, springing into life. Living, growing beings, certain of their place on the wheel of the seasons, sure of their destiny of flowering and fulfillment.

  • I'm only the instrument through which one particular art is expressed. Poetry flows through me but it originates in the wellspring of creation that is the source of us all. When you strike out at someone else's achievement you are attacking your own share of a great gift.

  • The pain we bring to others we cannot escape ourselves.

  • You must bind up any wounds you give the earth and you must feed her to replace what you take from her. Every gift she gives, every tree, every stalk of grain, costs her. Only if you repay your debts will she continue to provide.

  • You have no enemy until you make one.

Morgan Llywelyn, U.S.-born Irish writer

(1937)
