Without words, I would die. Without poetry, I would not exist.
--Swans

 

On our earth, before writing was invented, before the printing press was invented, poetry flourished. That is why we know that poetry is like bread; it should be shared by all, by scholars and by peasants, by all our vast, incredible, extraordinary family of humanity.
--Pablo Neruda

 

If Galileo had said in verse that the world moved, the Inquisition might have let him alone.
--Thomas Hardy

 

It takes a sound realist to make a convincing symbolist.
--D. J. Enright

 

Poetry heals the wounds inflicted by reason.
--Novalis

L'état d'esprit du soleil levant est allégresse malgré le jour cruel et le souvenir de la nuit. La teinte du caillot devient la rougeur de l'aurore.
--René Char
