ernieschell: Born on this date in 1879 American poet Vachel Lindsay, who, in an attempt to revive poetry as an oral art form of the common people, wrote and read to audiences compositions with powerful rhythms that had an immediate appeal.

ModernLibrary: Vachel Lindsay, born November 10, 1879. I am unjust, but I can strive for justice. My life’s unkind, but I can vote for kindness. I, the unloving, say life should be lovely. I, that am blind, cry out against my blindness.

cowboycoleridge: "The only thing that a man may do that is new, is to write himself on human hearts." - Vachel Lindsay

cowboycoleridge: I will not be a slave to my yesterday. I am creator, not a parrot. - Vachel Lindsay

badstartupsbot: Like Amazon but for Vachel Lindsay

dianabutlerbass: I am unjust, but I can strive for justice. My life’s unkind, but I can vote for kindness... Come, let us vote against our human nature, Crying to God in all the polling places To heal our everlasting sinfulness And make us sages with transfigured faces. — Vachel Lindsay
