A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness.
A poem begins in delight and ends in wisdom.
A poem is never finished, only abandoned.
A poem is true if it hangs together. Information points to something else. A poem points to nothing but itself.
E. M. Forster
A poet can survive everything but a misprint.
A poet is, before anything else, a person who is passionately in love with language.
W. H. Auden
A poet looks at the world the way a man looks at a woman.
A poet must leave traces of his passage, not proof.
