Quote of the Day (Leonard Cohen, on What It Took to Gain ‘An Education in the World’)

“I pray that loving memory
exists for them too
the precious ones I overthrew
for an education in the world.”—Canadian poet and singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen (1934-2016), about his life in Greece in the 1960s, in “Days of Kindness,” from Stranger Music: Selected Poems and Songs (1993)
