Quote of the Day (W.H. Auden, on Why ‘Life Remains a Blessing’)

"'O look, look in the mirror,
   O look in your distress:
Life remains a blessing
   Although you cannot bless.

"O stand, stand at the window
   As the tears scald and start;
You shall love your crooked neighbour
   With your crooked heart.'" ― W.H. Auden, “As I Walked Out One Evening,” from Another Time (1940)
