Meanwhile in my head, I'm undergoing open-heart surgery. - Anne Sexton.
294"I conquer the world with words,
conquer the mother tongue,
verbs, nouns, syntax.
I sweep away the beginning of things
and with a new language
that has the music of water the message of fire
I light the coming age
and stop time in your eyes
and wipe away the line
time from this single moment." - Nizar Qabbani, from I Conquer The World With Words
