If you’re looking for quotes about poetry, this post is a good place to start.
I recently made a post, to which I shall continue to add, in which I shared some of my favourite writing quotes.
However, I felt that this post could potentially become very long and confusing.
So, I’m experimenting here with the idea of being more specific in a post, about which particular type of writing quotes. This should make it easier for visitors to find the precise quotes to meet their needs.
“Poetry is my deepest health.” – Sylvia Plath
“Poems are moments’ monuments.” – Sylvia Plath
“Poetry is an echo, asking a shadow to dance.” – Carl Sandburg
“A poem is never finished, only abandoned.” – Paul Valery
“If I read a book and it makes my whole body so cold no fire can ever warm me, I know that is poetry.” – Emily Dickinson
“Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought, and the thought has found words.” – Robert Frost
“Genuine poetry can communicate before it is understood.” – T. S. Eliot
“Poetry is language at its most distilled and most powerful.” – Rita Dove
“I would define, in brief, the poetry of words, as the rhythmical creation of beauty.” – Edgar Allan Poe
“A poet is, before anything else, a person who is passionately in love with language.” – W. H. Auden
