writing it, but by how much the reader felt in reading it."
-John Ciardi
"The poet is a liar who always speaks the truth."

"When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his
limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry
reminds him of richness and diversity of his existence. When
power corrupts, poetry cleanses."
-John F Kennedy
"Poets are born, not paid."
-Wilson Mizner
"To have great poetry there must be great audiences too."
-Walt Whitman
"When you read and understand a poem, comprehending its rich and form
meanings, then you have mastered chaos a little."
-Stephen Spender
"A poem begins in delight and ends in wisdom."
-Robert Frost
"Poetry serves to communicate the hearts and hopes of men."

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