Poets are damned… but see with the eyes of angels.
- Allen Ginsberg
Always be a poet, even in prose.
- Charles Baudelaire
If you know what you are going to write when you're writing a poem, it's going to be average.
- Derek Walcott
It’s not easy to write a poem about a poem.
- Dejan Stojanović
I grew up in this town, my poetry was born between the hill and the river, it took its voice from the rain, and like the timber, it steeped itself in the forests.
- Pablo Neruda
To have great poets there must be great audiences too.
- Walt Whitman
We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.
A poet is a man who puts up a ladder to a star and climbs it while playing a violin.
- Edmond De Goncourt
At the touch of love everyone becomes a poet.
The poet's job is to put into words those feelings we all have that are so deep, so important, and yet so difficult to name, to tell the truth in such a beautiful way, that people cannot live without it.
- Jane Kenyon
