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.

Quotes to Inspire

“Your time is limited, so don’t

Waste it living someone else’s

life. Don’t be trapped by

dogma- which is living with

the result of other people’s

thinking. Don’t let the noise

of other’s opinions drown out

your own inner voice. And

most important, have the

courage to follow your heart

and intuition. They somehow

already know what you truly

want to become.”

-Steve Jobs
