Poets

Famous quotes containing the word poets:

    Truly men hate the truth; they’d liefer
    Meet a tiger on the road.
    Therefore the poets honey their truth with lying; but religion-
    Vendors and political men
    Pour from the barrel, new lies on the old,
    Robinson Jeffers (1887–1962)

    After all, poets shouldn’t be their own interpreters and shouldn’t carefully dissect their poems into everyday prose; that would mean the end of being poets. Poets send their creations into the world, it is up to the reader, the aesthetician, and the critic to determine what they wanted to say with their creations.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    Pain makes hens and poets cackle.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
