What one has not experienced, one will never understand in print.
When you have really exhausted an experience you always reverence and love it.
You cannot create experience. You must undergo it.
Nothing ever becomes real till it is experienced.
Nothing is a waste of time if you use the experience wisely.
Beauty is only skin deep.
Beauty is only skin deep. If you go after someone just because she’s beautiful but don’t have anything to talk about, it’s going to get boring fast. You want to look beyond the surface and see if you can have fun or if you have anything in common with this person.
A beauty is a woman you notice; a charmer is one who notices you.
Adlai E. Stevenson
A thing of beauty is a joy forever: its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness.
A witty woman is a treasure; a witty beauty is a power.
You don't make a poem with ideas, but with words.
You will find poetry nowhere unless you bring some of it with you.
Poetry should... should strike the reader as a wording of his own highest thoughts, and appear almost a remembrance.
Poetry: the best words in the best order.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Poets are soldiers that liberate words from the steadfast possession of definition.
Trees are the earth's endless effort to speak to the listening heaven.
Understanding the laws of nature does not mean that we are immune to their operations.
The poetry of the earth is never dead.
The sea is everything. It covers seven tenths of the terrestrial globe. Its breath is pure and healthy. It is an immense desert, where man is never lonely, for he feels life stirring on all sides.
The snow itself is lonely or, if you prefer, self-sufficient. There is no other time when the whole world seems composed of one thing and one thing only.
Joseph Wood Krutch
Love is metaphysical gravity.
R. Buckminster Fuller
