Inscriptions and Marks
  • Signed: l.r.: Corita
  • (not assigned): Printed text reads: ENTRANCE ONLY / Hope-is being able to go in any direction-to know it is the right direction / NOT I NOR ANYONE ELSE CAN TRAVEL THAT ROAD for you, you must travel it for yourself. It is not far, it is within reach, Perhaps you have been on it since you were born and did not know, Perhaps it is everywhere on water and on land... If you tire, give me both burdens, and rest the chuff of your hand on my hip, And in due time you shall repay the same service to me, For after we start we never lie by again... Walt Whitman
