It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there.

___Willam Carlos Williams


Words are loaded pistols. ___Jean-Paul Sartre


All the fun's in how you say a thing. __Robert Frost


The poet lights the light and fades away.
But the light goes on an on. __Emily Dickinson
