Quote Left By right we arm but by love, disarm. So give me not a reading of the law but tales of love's deeds in hearts and homes--how racks have shed arms like autumn leaves and turned the land from red to gold. Quote Right

Quote Left Ordinary people leave their parents’ house but continue to live under their employers’ and their teachers’ roofs. Great people leave both their parents’ and their employers’ houses but continue to live under their teachers’ roof. Titans, the greatest of them all, grow too big for all three houses and therefore live under their own roof at home, at work, and in thought. Quote Right

Quote Left Gender equality means nothing until we consider it to mean that femininity and masculinity, when we consider the full scope of capabilities that they each afford humanity, are of equal value to society.

I am Agona Apell, a civil engineer by training and a writer by blessing. I have had a lifelong attachment to literature. My school-time choice of career, though, tore me from the world of literary pursuits to land me in the world of engineering where I spent 20 years. The parting was not to last, and how I rejoice in the reunion with my passion. Since 2006 I have been building my life anew, this time as a writer. Although non-fiction prose is the staple of my writing, I occasionally make forays into poetry. So here I am, glad to be among this sprightly host of poets.
