Each month we choose a favorite quote--something fun or something to make you think. See the archive for quotes from previous months.


"The place was like something out of Dante's Inferno, that ancient Italian poem that goes on forever about what hell is like. I never read it, of course, because I like only stories with happy endings, but I heard about it on public TV one time and it sounded perfectly dreadful. Apparently the place is filled with fire and torture and poison gas and whips and chains and people screaming and stuff while their flesh is being ripped off by devils. Ugh. It's stuff like that that gives poetry a bad name, if you ask me."
