Poetry is a means of telling that, solitary as you are, in the act of writing a poem, you are in touch with the whole chain of being. You are always trying not only to get in touch with your most primal self, but with the whole history of the race.

--Stanley Kunitz



Sir, I admit your general rule,
That every poet is a fool,
But you yourself may serve to show it,
That every fool is not a poet.

--Samuel Taylor Coleridge
