sheypeters: Where there is great love, there are always miracles. ~ Willa Cather

UpSearchLearn: "There are some things you learn best in calm, and some in storm." ~Willa Cather

unummagnumtotum: "Nothing is far and nothing is near, if one desires. The world is little, people are little, human life is little. There is only one big thing-desire. And before it, when it is big, all is little." -Willa Cather

mayhewbergman: My fifth grader just turned in a creative writing piece that was straight up Willa Cather meets Cormac McCarthy about a daughter who takes over her mother's midwifery practice and dies in a dust storm - in 400 words. Okay!

gayle_dallas: Fay Godwin “...first mornings long ago; the amazement of a new soul in a new world; that had dreamed something despairing, something glorious, in the dark before it was born; a soul obsessed by what it did not know, under the cloud of a past it could not recall.” —Willa Cather

gayle_dallas: “The land belongs to the future. I might as well try to will the sunset to my brother's children. We come and go, but the land is always here. And the people who love it and understand it are the people who own it—for a little while.” —-Willa Cather

mkwfreeman: Good thread for any Willa Cather fans out there, and I hope you’re out there:

andrw_pseudonym: I took a class a few years ago on Willa Cather, an early 20th-century American novelist. She also writes poems: "I feel again That joy which brings her art to faultless flower, That passion of her kings, who, reign on reign, Arrayed her star by star with pride and power."

BKE: 50% done with O Pioneers!, by Willa Cather

JennyMitchellGo: Do you become 'mainstream' if lots of other writers claim you as an influence and/or your work has been adapted for film/television? Not sure if Willa Cather has had this sort of cultural impact although I could be very wrong.

KazimAliPoet: Why did Willa Cather never win the Nobel? Why is she not (more widely) recognized as a genius? She's equal to Woolf and superior to James, Dreiser, Anderson, Hemingway, Lewis. I'd stack her against Faulkner or Steinbeck any day. Why is she still (among the "greats") marginal?

gayle_dallas: Chance Kafka “The high sparkling air drank it up like blotting-paper. It was lost in the thrilling blue of the new sky and the song of the thin wind in the piñons. The old fretted lines which marked one off, which defined her—made her a soprano — were all erased.” —Willa Cather

melnickjeffrey1: Since I am reading A Lost Lady right now, I will take the liberty of repeating this story: Sometime around 2010--Boom Boom Pow was still huge--my daughter hurriedly packed O Pioneers into her school bag one morning and idly said “Willa Cather drop the beat now!”

enduringscreens: Willa Cather's novels can be bracing, icy, unsentimental in one aspect, and profoundly bittersweet, romantic, and emotional the next, and the lines and paragraphs hum between these two senses brilliantly

gayle_dallas: Leila Fores “As long as she lived that ecstasy was going to be hers. She would live for it, work for it, die for it; but she was going to have it, time after time, height after height. She could hear the crash of the orchestra again, and she rose on the brasses.” —Willa Cather

KBAndersen: The equivalent of 2.1 million Americans died in the 1918 epidemic. Thus strange how few novels about it there are by people who lived through it. Interesting too that the only two I know are by women, Willa Cather (One of Ours) and Katherine Anne Porter (Pale Horse, Pale Rider).

He has drunk the sheer divine
