Famous quotes containing the word poetic:
“The poetic notion of infinity is far greater than that which is sponsored by any creed.”
—Joseph Brodsky (b. 1940)
“There is nothing more poetic and terrible than the skyscrapers battle with the heavens that cover them. Snow, rain, and mist highlight, drench, or conceal the vast towers, but those towers, hostile to mystery and blind to any sort of play, shear off the rains tresses and shine their three thousand swords through the soft swan of the fog.”
—Federico García Lorca (18981936)
“Nine-tenths of English poetic literature is the result either of vulgar careerism or of a poet trying to keep his hand in. Most poets are dead by their late twenties.”
—Robert Graves (18951985)
