Allen Ginsberg wrote a book "Howl and Other Poems." One of the other poems is called "Song" and includes this: "The weight of the world is love. Under the burden of solitude, under the burden of dissatisfaction, the weight that we bear is love."

It's handy to have that in my consciousness because it pops up at odd times, somtimes at obvious moments for it, and sometimes when I'd rather not think about love but about something else, like me being right and other people being wrong. Thank you, Mr. Ginsberg.
