Sandra Cisneros
b. 12-20-1954; Chicago, IL

Sandra Cisneros, internationally acclaimed for her poetry and fiction, has been the recipient of numerous awards, including the Lannan Literary Award and the American Book Award, and of fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the MacArthur Foundation.

Cisneros is the author of the novels The House on Mango Street and Caramelo, a collection of short stories Woman Hollering Creek, a book of poetry Loose Woman, and a children's book Hairs/Pelitos.

Sandra Cisneros quotes ~
“In English my name means hope. In Spanish it means too many letters. It means sadness, it means waiting. It is like the number nine. A muddy color. It is the Mexican records my father plays on Sunday mornings when he is shaving, songs like sobbing.” ~ The House on Mango Street

John Clare
b. 7-13-1793; Helpston, Soke of Peterborough, Northamptonshire, England
d. 5-20-1864; St Andrew's Hospital, Northampton

John Clare, who grew up as the Industrial Revolution wrecked havoc on rural England, was commonly known as “the Northamptonshire Peasant Poet”. His best known poem “I Am” was written while he was a patient in Northampton General Lunatic Asylum, where he had been admitted as he tried to reconcile his creative passion for writing with the reality of being a farm laborer.

I am: yet what I am none cares or knows,
My friends forsake me like a memory lost;
I am the self-consumer of my woes,
They rise and vanish in oblivious host,
Like shades in love and death's oblivion lost;
And yet I am, and live with shadows tost

Into the nothingness of scorn and noise,
Into the living sea of waking dreams,
Where there is neither sense of life nor joys,
But the vast shipwreck of my life's esteems;
And e'en the dearest--that I loved the best--
Are strange--nay, rather stranger than the rest.

I long for scenes where man has never trod,
A place where woman never smiled or wept;
There to abide with my creator, God,
And sleep as I in childhood sweetly slept:
Untroubling and untroubled where I lie,
The grass below--above the vaulted sky.

Kenneth McKenzie Clark
b. 7-13-1903; London, England
d. 5-21-1983; Hythe, Kent

Art historian, broadcaster and museum director wrote the BBC Telelvision series, Civilisation.

FYI - Kenneth Clark's family wealth came from manufacturing textiles - as in Coats & Clark. Clark was also a friend of Edith Wharton.

Kenneth Clark quotes ~
• “I cannot distinguish between thought and feeling, and I am convinced that a combination of words and music, colour and movement can extend human experience in a way that words alone cannot do. For this reason I believe in television as a medium, ...”
• “Lives devoted to Beauty seldom end well.”
• “The great artist takes what he needs.”
• “Opera, next to Gothic architecture, is one of the strangest inventions of Western man. It could not have been foreseen by any logical process.”
• “The stabilising, comprehensive religions of the world, the religions which penetrate to every part of a man's being – in Egypt, India or China – gave the female principle of creation at least as much importance as the male, and wouldn't have taken seriously a philosophy that failed to include them both... It's a curious fact that the all-male religions have produced no religious imagery – in most cases have positively forbidden it. The great religious art of the world is deeply involved with the female principle.”
• “It is lack of confidence, more than anything else, that kills a civilisation. We can destroy ourselves by cynicism and disillusion, just as effectively as by bombs.”

d. 3-19-2008; Sri Lanka

Arthur C. Clarke, science fiction writer and inventor, is best known for his novel 2001: A Space Odyssey, which was also made into a movie.

Clarke named his lunar settlement Clavius Base for astronmer Christoph Clavius.

Arthur C. Clarke quotes ~
• “I'm sure we would not have had men on the Moon if it had not been for Wells and Verne and the people who write about this and made people think about it. I'm rather proud of the fact that I know several astronauts who became astronauts through reading my books.”
• “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
• “The only way to discover the limits of the possible is to go beyond them into the impossible.”
• “In the new wilderness of the Solar System may lie the future preservation of mankind.”
