A few favourite quotes

No world is too hard,

If you summon up enough heat.

You can do it.

The fire is there in your fingertips…

(Jerome Rothenberg)

Poetry is what we make of disparity—an effort to bridge the gap between the raggedness of daily life and our deeper intuition of (or yearning for) coherence, if only with a flying leap. Life is accidental. A poem is a foothold, a stepping stone, a space probe. A whole is what we leave in our wake.  (Kevin Craft)

Das Gedicht ist einsam. Es ist einsam und unterwegs… das Gedicht zeigt eine starke Neigung zum Verstummen.

The poem is lonely. It is lonely and on its way… the poem shows a strong tendency to fall silent.

(Paul Celan)
