 “Of all the inanimate objects, of all men's creations, books are the nearest to us for they contain our very thoughts, our ambitions, our indignations, our illusions, our fidelity to the truth, and our persistent leanings to error. But most of all they resemble us in their precious hold on life.” Joseph Conrad

"Books have to be heavy because the whole world is inside them" Cornelia Funke

 “These are not books, lumps of lifeless paper, but minds alive on the shelves. From each of them goes out its own voice... and just as the touch of a button on our set will fill the room with music, so by taking down one of these volumes and opening it, one can call into range the voice of a man far distant in time and space, and hear him speaking to us, mind to mind, heart to heart.”  Gilbert Highet

 A book must be an ice-axe to break the seas frozen inside our soul. ~Franz Kafka

 ‎"If you stuff yourself full of poems, essays, plays, stories, novels, films, comic strips, magazines, music, you automatically explode every morning like Old Faithful. I have never had a dry spell in my life, mainly because I feed myself well, to the point of bursting. I wake early and hear my morning voices leaping around in my head like jumping beans. I get out of bed to trap them before they escape" Ray Bradbury

 

 

 

 

 A room without books is like a body without a soul.   

Marcus Tullius Cicero

“There is no friend as loyal as a book.” 
― Ernest Hemingway

 

 “Books are carefully folded forests/void of autumn/bound from the sun” 

― Saul Williams


 Medicine for the soul.  ~Inscription over the door of the Library at Thebes 

 

 The art of reading is in great part that of acquiring a better understanding of life from one's encounter with it in a book.  ~André Maurois

 Books let us into their souls and lay open to us the secrets of our own.  ~William Hazlitt

“Books are carefully folded forests/void of autumn/bound from the sun” Saul Williams

 

 To sit alone in the lamplight with a book spread out before you, and hold intimate converse with men of unseen generations - such is a pleasure beyond compare.  ~Kenko Yoshida

 If there's a book you really want to read but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.  ~Toni Morrison

 A book is the only place in which you can examine a fragile thought without breaking it, or explore an explosive idea without fear it will go off in your face.  It is one of the few havens remaining where a man's mind can get both provocation and privacy.  ~Edward P. Morgan

 

A good book has no ending.  ~R.D. Cumming

 "Books wont stay banned. They wont burn. Ideas wont go to jail. In the long run of history, the censor and the inquisitor have always lost. The only sure weapon against bad ideas is better ideas."Whitney Griswold, pres., Yale, 1959

 

 A book is like a garden carried in the pocket.  ~Chinese Proverb

 I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.”  Groucho Marx

 

 

 

 

 The smallest bookstore still contains more ideas of worth than have been presented in the entire history of television.  ~Andrew Ross

The Artist Lounge Web Zine Celebrates National Poetry Month 2012

Each day for National Poetry Month April 2012 a poem /poet will be FEATURED

and all that is ....

 

 

 "The poet or the revolutionary is there to articulate the necessity, but until the people themselves apprehend it, nothing can happen… Perhaps it can’t be done without the poet, but it certainly can’t be done without the people. The poet and the people get on generally very badly, and yet they need each other. The poet knows it sooner than the people do. The people usually know it after the poet is dead; but that’s all right. The point is to get your work done, and your work is to change the world "James Baldwin 

 Poetry is not only dream and vision; it is the skeleton architecture of our lives. It lays the foundations for a future of change,a bridge across our fears of what has never been before.Audre Lorde

 a bridge across our fears of what has never been before.Audre Lorde
It lays the foundations for a future of change,
 a bridge across our fears of what has never been before.Audre Lorde

 Poetry is just the evidence of life.  If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash.  ~Leonard Cohen

 “It isn't possible to love and part. You will wish that it was. muddle it, but you can never pull

 it out of you. I know by experience that the poets are right: love is eternal.

You can transmute love, ignore it,
You will wish that it was. 
You can transmute love, ignore it, 
muddle it, but you can never pull 
it out of you. I know by experience 
that the poets are right: love is eternal.

” E.M. Forster,A Room with a View 

 There is something about writing poetry that brings a man close to the cliff's edge CHARLES BUKOWSKI, Notes of a Dirty Old Man

 

If you are a poet, you will see clearly that there is a cloud floating in this sheet of paper. Without a cloud, there will be no rain; without rain, the trees cannot grow; without trees, we cannot make paper. The cloud is essential for the paper to exist." - Thich Nhat Hanh in "the Heart of Understanding"

"If I can stop one heart from breaking I shall not live in vain.."Emily Dickinson 

 

 Poetry is nearer to vital truth than history.  ~Plato, Ion

 poetry is truth dwelling in beauty.” Robert Gilfillan 

 poetry is the art of uniting pleasure with truth.” Samuel Johnson

 poetry comes nearer to vital truth than history.” Plato 

 poetry is the utterance of deep and heart-felt truth--the true poet is very near the oracle.” Edwin Hubbel 

 “The only thing that can save the world is the reclaiming of the awareness of the world. That's whatpoetry does.” Allen Ginsberg

 poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.” Robert Frost

 “Out of our quarrels with others we make rhetoric. Out of our quarrels with ourselves we makepoetry.” William Butler Yeats 

 

 

 A poem begins with a lump in the throat.  ~Robert Frost

    

“They say that I am a poet 
I wonder what they would say if they saw me from the inside I bottle 
emotions and place them into the sea for others to unbottle on 
distant shores I am unsure as to whether they ever reach and for 
that matter as to whether I ever get my point across 
or my love” Saul Williams

"Love is the ultimate meaning of everything around us. It is not a mere sentiment; it is truth; it is the joy that is at the root of all creation. "Tagore

 “I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.” 

― Pablo Neruda100 Love Sonnets

 Beware, my body and my soul, beware above all of crossing your arms and assuming the sterile attitude of the spectator, for life is not a spectacle, a sea of griefs is not a proscenium, and a man who wails is not a dancing bear.” 

― Aimé CésaireNotebook of a Return to the Native Land

 We don't read and write poetry because it's cute.  We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race.  And the human race is filled with passion.  And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life.  But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.  Dead Poet's Society

 "The is more important than art....To revere art and have no understanding of the process that forces it into existence ,is finally not even to understand what art is " Amiri Baraka 

Conservatism makes no poetry, breathes no prayer, has no invention; it is all memory. Reform has no gratitude, no prudence, no husbandry. Ralph Waldo Emerson

 Poetry is not an expression of the party line.  It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.  ~Allen Ginsberg

 

 “Poetry is the one place where people can speak their original human mind. It is the outlet for people to say in public what is known in private. ” Allen Ginsberg

 Poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the world.  ~Percy Byshe Shelley

 

 Poetry is the art of uniting pleasure with truth.  Samuel Johnson
