Favorite Poetry By Walt Whitman Quotes

1. "The theme of the diary is always the personal, but it does not mean only a personal story: it means a personal relationship to all things and people. The personal, if it is deep enough, becomes universal, mythical, symbolic; I never generalize, intellectualise. I see, I hear, I feel. These are my primitive elements of discovery.Music, dance, poetry and painting are the channels for emotion. It is through them that experience penetrates our bloodstream."
Author: Anaïs Nin
2. "Like Mom, Zoe thought–like Mom used to. And that's where they differed, for Zoe wrote quiet poetry suffused with twilight and questions. It's not even good poetry, she thought.

Author: Annette Curtis Klause

Author: Meljean Brook
8. "The daily routine of most adults is so heavy and artificial that we are closed off to much of the world. We have to do this in order to get our work done. I think one purpose of art is to get us out of those routines. When we hear music or poetry or stories, the world opens up again."
Author: Ursula K. Le Guin
9. "I don't like to boast, but I have probably skipped more poetry than any other person of my age and weight in this country."
