The Words of the Prophets are written on the Hawthorne Walls

The Words of the Prophets are written on the Hawthorne Walls:

Men reject their prophets and slay them, 
but they love their martyrs
and honor those whom they have slain.
-Fyodor Dostoevsky

The beauty of the world has two edges,
one of laughter
and one of anguish
cutting the heart asunder.
-Virginia Woolf

The silence drew off
Baring the pebbles and shells
and all the tatty wreckage of my life...
then it gathered itself,
and in one sweeping tide
rushed me off to sleep.
-Sylvia Plath

We are all in the gutter,
but some of us
are looking at the stars.
-Oscar Wilde
