Quotes on Poetry:

Poetry is the journal of a sea animal living on land, wanting to fly in the air. ― Carl Sandburg

Poetry is an act of peace. – Pablo Neruda

To be a poet is a condition, not a profession. – Robert Frost

Poetry is like a bird, it ignores all frontiers. – Yevgeny Yevtushenko

All poets, all writers are political. They either maintain the status quo, or they say, ’Something’s wrong, let’s change it for the better.’ – Sonia Sanchez

Poetry is plucking at the heartstrings, and making music with them. ― Dennis Gabor
