“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Agrilogistical Antigone

Here's a nice bit:

Of all my cares, you
                        Have touched the one most painful
                                    to me:
My father’s doom – recurring
                        Like the plowing
Of a field three
                        Times – and the ruin
Of us all – the famed
                        Family of the Labdakids!
