Five Great Quotations about Poetry

“All a poet can do is warn.” – Wilfred Owen

“I often think of a poem as a door that opens into a room where I want to go.” – Minnie Bruce Pratt

“And as imagination bodies forth the forms of things unknown, the poet’s pen turns them to shapes, and gives to airy nothings a local habitation and a name.” – William Shakespeare

“Poetry creates the myth, the prose writer draws its portrait.” – Jean-Paul Sartre

“You can’t write poetry on the computer.” –Quentin Tarantino
