Quote of the Day (W. H. Auden, on How ‘There is Always Another Story’)

“Behind the corpse in the reservoir, behind the ghost on the links,
Behind the lady who dances and the man who madly drinks,
Under the look of fatigue, the attack of migraine and the sigh
There is always another story, there is more than meets the eye.”—English poet W. H. Auden (1907-1973), “Twelve Songs,” from Collected Poems (2007)
