Poetry is a dream dreamed in the presence of reason.
Keep your eye clear and hit ’em where they ain’t.
In the midst of our happiness we were very pleased.
Poetry begins where certitude ends.

For me the initial delight is in the surprise of remembering something I didn’t know I already knew.
A work of art is never completed, merely abandoned.
I like restraint—if doesn’t go too far.
There is only one plot: Things are not what they seem.
The art of writing is the art of discovering what you believe.
Writing is easy. All you have to do is cross out the wrong words.
The art of running the mile consists, in essence, of reaching the threshold of consciousness at the instant of breasting the tape.
