Famous quotes containing the words wallace stevens and/or stevens:

    Mon Dieu, hear the poet’s prayer.
    The romantic should be here.
    The romantic should be there.
    It ought to be everywhere.
    But the romantic must never remain.
    Mon Dieu, and must never again return.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    Oh, Blessed rage for order, pale Ramon,
    The maker’s rage to order words of the sea,
    Words of the fragrant portals, dimly-starred,
    And of ourselves and of our origins,
    In ghostlier demarcations, keener sounds.
    —Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
