“Actors may (or may not) read poems well, but poets have unique rights to their work, and unique insights and interests to offer as we hear their idiom, pacing, tone and emphases,”
“In the phrases of songs and poems bread is gold, it is the motherland, it is the hard work of the masses, it is life itself.”
“We all write poems; it is simply that the poets are the ones who write in words”
“A poet who has not produced a good poem before he is twenty-five, we may conclude cannot, and never will do so.”
“I was working on the proof of one of my poems all the morning, and took out a comma. In the afternoon I put it back again.”
“If you cannot be a poet, be the poem.”
“The only gift is a portion of thyself. . . the poet brings his poem; the shepherd his lamb. . .”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
