"Weak things have power.
...Only the truly weak are free of
the temptation to dominate, to harm.
That is why democracy is about weakness,
why it is to the weak we turn for help
when we are beaten, condemned.
This is why poems continue
like the air."

I still don't understand why he prefers initially-anonymous quotations.
