Tuesday’s Quotes #1 – October 27, 2015 – Happy Birthday to Dylan Thomas

“Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”

— Dylan Thomas, opening stanza,  “Do not go gentle into that good night”

Dylan Thomas, Welsh poet, born this day in 1914, in Swansea, and died on November 9. 1953 in New York City. Unlike many poets, he was well-known, critically acclaimed and reasonably successful during his lifetime, but, like most poets, he never earned a great deal of money from his work.
