So many quotes about #grief in this book that I couldn‘t choose only one for #QuotsyApr19! One of them even includes a previous day‘s word #folly.

The Last Dark | Stephen R. Donaldson

“Mortal lives are not stones. They are not seas. For impermanence to judge itself by the standards of permanence is #folly. Or it is arrogance. Life merely is what it is, neither more nor less. To deem it less because it is not more is to heed the counsels of the Despiser.” #QuotsyApr19

From “The Spell of the Yukon”

“There‘s a land - oh, it beckons and beckons,
And I want to go back - and I will.”

This is a poem about Alaska, once known as Seward‘s Folly.

“They‘ve different laws than us.They‘ve entirely stopped the slave trade in their own country—the worse for them—and would like us to copy them in their #folly.Why, the trade is the best trade there is!Black Gold, we call it! Still, there‘s one way they help us. The native chiefs are so greedy for our trade goods, they sell their people cheaper than they ever did to tempt us to run the British blockade. So we profit despite the damned Englishmen.”
