A Quote by Emily Dickinson on eternity, exploration, life, sea, and soul

Exultation is the going

Can the sailor understand

A Quote by Thomas Wolfe on art, being, reward, spirit, magic, creating, vision, life, and eternity

At that instant he saw, in one blaze of light, an image of unutterable conviction, the reason why the artist works and lives and has his being--the reward he seeks--the only reward he really cares about, without which there is nothing.
