jackpeg: STATEMENTS ON THE ART OF POETRY FOR THE EDIFICATION AND ENLIGHTENMENT OF F.S. FANS:

We have more poets than judges and interpreters of poetry. It is easier to write an indifferent poem than to understand a good one.--Michel Eyquem de Montaigne

You arrive at truth through poetry; I arrive at poetry through truth.--Joseph Joubert

Poetry is emotion put into measure. The emotion must come by nature, but the measure can be acquired by art.--Thomas Hardy

Writing free verse is like playing tennis with the net down.--Robert Frost

Poetry is an art in which the artist by means of rhythm and great sincerity can convey to others the sentiment which he feels about life.--John Masefield

Indifference to poetry is one of the most conspicuous characteristics of the human race.--Robert Lynd

A poet is, before anything else, a person who is passionately in love with language.--W. H. Auden

The office of poetry is not to make us think accurately, but feel truly.--Frederick William Robertson

The greatest poem ever known
Is one all poets have outgrown:
The poetry, innate, untold,
Of being only four years old.--Christopher Darlington Morley
