What's the Good Word?!? Well, Rumor Has It.....

When power lead man toward arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations.  When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence.  When power corrupts, poetry cleanses. - John F Kennedy 
(Thanks for the quote, Frank!!)
