“I think these days when there is so little to believe in——when the old loyalties——God, country, and the hope of Heaven——aren’t very real, we are more dependent than we should be on our friends. The only thing left to believe in——someone who seems beautiful.”- Selected Essays

William Carlos Williams, the author of both of these quotations, was born on this day 130 years ago. I often feel an affinity for his generation of writers more than any other. Perhaps I am part of The Lost Generation Part Deux. Perhaps we who fall between Gen X and Y should take this name for ourselves (since no one else has bothered to give us one)?
