Quotes About Poetry And Life

Poetry is just the evidence of life.

If your life is burning well,

poetry is just the ash – Leonard Cohen

 

Poetry is the journal of a sea animal

living on land, wanting to fly in the air – Carl Sandburg

 

My role in society, or any artist or poet’s role,

is to try and express what we all feel.

Not to tell people how to feel.

Not as a preacher, not as a leader,

but as a reflection of us all – John Lennon

I love poetry because it speaks one language, read in different languages to whoever is reading it but all turns out to mean the same thing.
