The long stretch of road (Wright)

Tell me, what is the long stretch of road for if not to sort out the reasons why we are here and why we do what we do, from why we are not in the other lane doing what others do.

C. D. Wright, Cooling Time: An American Poetry Vigil

The abundance (Keynes)

The strenuous purposeful money-makers may carry all of us along with them into the lap of economic abundance, but it will be those peoples, who can keep alive, and cultivate into a fuller perfection, the art of life itself and do not sell themselves for the means of life, who will be able to enjoy the abundance when it comes.

John Maynard Keynes

On identity (Shriver)

Membership of a larger group is not an identity. Being Asian is not an identity. Being gay is not an identity. Being deaf, blind, or wheelchair-bound is not an identity, nor is being economically deprived.... If we embrace narrow group-based identities too fiercely, we cling to the very cages in which others would seek to trap us. We pigeonhole ourselves. We limit our own notion of who we are, and in presenting ourselves as one of a membership, a representative of our type, an ambassador of an amalgam, we ask not to be seen.

Lionel Shriver

That something can happen once is astounding. After it has, there's nothing easier than believing that it can (must?) again.
