One must be drenched in words, literally soaked with them to have the right ones form themselves into the proper pattern at the right moment. When they come . . . they come as things in themselves; it is a matter of felicitous juggling!; and no amount of will or emotion can help the thing a bit.

--from The Letters of Hart Crane, November 26, 1921

--Lucille Clifton

Like a great poet, Nature knows how to produce the greatest effects with the most limited means.

--Heinrich Heine
