Emerson’s Quotations about Poets and Poetry – 23 October 2008

“There are two classes of poets – the poets by education and practice, these we respect; and poets by nature, these we love.”

“Poetry must be new as foam, and as old as the rock.”

“Poetry teaches the enormous force of a few words, and, in proportion to the inspiration, checks loquacity.”

– Ralph Waldo Emerson (25 May 1803 – 27 Apri1 1882)

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
