“Whenever I saw her, I felt like I had been living in another country, doing moderately well in another language, and then she showed up speaking English and suddenly I could speak with all the complexity and nuance that I hadn’t realized was gone. With Lucy I was a native speaker.”― Ann Patchett, Truth and Beauty

Auden said a poem should be more interesting than anything that might be said about it. If you take the theme out of a poem and talk about that theme, there should still be some residual being left in the poem that goes on ticking, something like, why not say it, color, something that has an effect on your central nervous system. It is not what a poem says with its mouth, it’s what a poem does with its eyes.
— Mary Ruefle, from Madness, Rack, and Honey (via bostonpoetryslam)

How wealth is passed on through the generations


You may have seen John Oliver use the lottery to demonstrate how income inequality works, but why has it recently become more of a problem?  UC Berkeley’s Robert Reich talks about how our recent policies around the estate tax have long term consequences:

We’re on the cusp of the largest inter-generational wealth transfer in history. The “self-made” man or woman, the symbol of American meritocracy, is disappearing. Six of today’s ten wealthiest Americans are heirs to prominent fortunes.

Reich has some ideas for solutions to this issue and you can read about them here.
