W. H. Auden
A poet is, before anything else, a person who is passionately in love with language.
The most exciting rhythms seem unexpected and complex, the most beautiful melodies simple and inevitable.
No poet can know what his poem is going to be like until he has written it.
It is a sad fact about our culture that a poet can earn much more money writing or talking about his art than he can by practicing it.
