If my poetry aims to achieve anything, it's to deliver people from the limited ways in which they see and feel.

Listen, real poetry doesn't say anything; it just ticks off the possibilities. opens all doors. you can walk through any one that suits you.

There is no frigate like a book to take us lands away nor any coursers like a page of prancing poetry.

Poetry is the art of substantiating shadows, and of lending existence to nothing.

Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.
