"In the neuter austerity of that terrain all phenomena were bequeathed a strange equality and no one thing nor spider nor stone nor blade of grass could put forth claim to precedence. The very clarity of these articles belied their familiarity, for the eye predicates the whole on some feature or part and here was nothing more luminous than another and nothing more enshadowed and in the optical democracy of such landscapes all preference is made whimsical and a man and a rock become endowed with unguessed kinship." — Cormac McCarthy

"Lay down these words Before your mind like rocks. Placed solid, by hands In choice of place, set Before the body of the mind in space and time: Solidity of bark, leaf, or wall riprap of things: Cobble of milky way. Straying planets, These poems, people, lost ponies with Dragging saddles — and rocky sure-foot trails. The worlds like an endless four-dimensional Game of Go. Ants and pebbles In the thin loam, each rock a word a creek-washed stone Granite: ingrained with torment of fire and weight Crystal and sediment linked hot all change, in thoughts, As well as things.” — Gary Snyder

"Lay down these words 
Before your mind like rocks. 
Placed solid, by hands 
In choice of place, set 
Before the body of the mind 
in space and time: 
Solidity of bark, leaf, or wall 
riprap of things: 
Cobble of milky way. 
Straying planets, 
These poems, people, 
lost ponies with 
Dragging saddles —
and rocky sure-foot trails. 
The worlds like an endless 
four-dimensional 
Game of Go. 
Ants and pebbles 
In the thin loam, each rock a word 
a creek-washed stone 
Granite: ingrained 
with torment of fire and weight 
Crystal and sediment linked hot 
all change, in thoughts, 
As well as things.”
