Even after all this time, the sun never says to the earth,"You owe me." Look what happens with a love like that. It lights the whole sky.
A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness.
Poetry is what gets lost in translation.
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead;
I lift my eyes and all is born again.
Always be a poet, even in prose.
If you have the words, there's always a chance that you'll find the way.
You only live twice:
Once when you're born
And once when you look death in the face.
Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.
Watch out for intellect,
because it knows so much it knows nothing
and leaves you hanging upside down,
mouthing knowledge as your heart
falls out of your mouth.
