Quote of the Day (Federico Garcia Lorca, on God and the Soul of a Child)

“I will go very far,
farther than those hills,
farther than the seas,
close to the stars,
to beg Christ the Lord
to give back the soul I had
of old, when I was a child…”--Federico Garcia Lorca, “The Ballad of the Little Square,” in The Selected Poems of Federico Garcia Lorca (1955)
