Famous quotes containing the words lawrence ferlinghetti, ferlinghetti and/or lawrence:

    Constantly risking absurdity
    and death
    whenever he performs
    above the heads
    of his audience
    the poet like an acrobat
    climbs on rime
    to a high wire of his own making.
    Lawrence Ferlinghetti (b. 1919)

    The pennycandystore beyond the El
    is where I first
    fell in love
    with unreality
    —Lawrence Ferlinghetti (b. 1919)

    Before Lawrence, I had known a good deal about labor, but I had not felt about it. I had not got angry. In Lawrence I got angry. I wanted to do something about it.
    Mary Heaton Vorse (1874–1966)
