Famous quotes containing the words poets and, poets, poems and/or included:

    Murder in the murderer is no such ruinous thought as poets and romancers will have it; it does not unsettle him, or fright him from his ordinary notice of trifles: it is an act quite easy to be contemplated, but in its sequel, it turns out to be a horrible jangle and confounding of all relations.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    When poets go off the boil, they sound like bumble bees; when critics do, they sound like sewing machines.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    Our poems will have failed if our readers are not brought by them beyond the poems.
    Muriel Rukeyser (1913–1980)

    People accept a representation in which the elements of wish and fantasy are purposely included but which nevertheless proclaims to represent “the past” and to serve as a guide-rule for life, thereby hopelessly confusing the spheres of knowledge and will.
    Johan Huizinga (1872–1945)
