    Look at this poet William Carlos Williams: he is primitive and native, and his roots are in raw forest and violent places; he is word-sick and place-crazy. He admires strength, but for what? Violence! This is the cult of the frontier mind.
    Edward Dahlberg (1900–1977)

    that ticked yesterday so well?
    —William Carlos Williams (1883–1963)

    He doesn’t know a damn thing about China ... That’s what makes him an expert. He knows nothing about music, being tone deaf. That’s what makes him a musician ... And he’s batty in the head. That’s what makes him a philosopher.
    —William Carlos Williams (1883–1963)
