Archibald MacLeish’s “Geography of this time” :
What is required of us is the recognition of the frontiers between the centuries. And to take heart: to cross over. We are very far. We are past the place where the light lifts and farther on than the relinquishment of leaves–farther even than the persistence in the east of the green color. Beyond are the confused tracks, the guns, the watchers. What is required of us, Companions, is the recognition of the frontiers across this history, and to take heart: to cross over–to persist and to cross over and survive, but to survive to cross over.
