A Few Favorite Poetry Quotes Posted by Marissa 3 Image via Wikipedia For today’s Post-a-Day2011 entry…a few favorite quotes about poetry: “A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe “Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.” Aristotle “Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen” Leonardo da Vinci “Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality. But, of course, only those who have personality and emotion know what it means to want to escape from these” Emily Dickinson Related Articles Auto-generated Melville/Dickinson poetry (boingboing.net) Maria Shriver: Poetry Editor (observer.com) Where Is Poetry Going?
