Poetry quotes

Don Marquis
Poetry is what Milton saw when he went blind.

Socrates
I decided that it was not wisdom that enabled poets to write their poetry, but a kind of instinct or inspiration, such as you find in seers and prophets who deliver all their sublime messages without knowing in the least what they mean.

Christopher Morley
The courage of the poets is to keep ajar the door that leads into madness.

W.B. Yeats
Out of the quarrel with others we make rhetoric out of the quarrel with ourselves we make poetry.

Oscar Wilde
A poet can survive anything but a misprint.

Thomas Babington Macaulay
Perhaps no person can be a poet, or even enjoy poetry, without a certain unsoundness of mind.

Carl Sandburg
Poetry is the journal of the sea animal living on land, wanting to fly in the air. Poetry is a search for syllables to shoot at the barriers of the unknown and the unknowable. Poetry is a phantom script telling how rainbows are made and why they go away.

Robert Frost
A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness.
