Robert Warren Quotes


12 Robert Warren quotes:



"I think the greatest curse of American society has been the idea of an easy millennialism -- that some new drug, or the next election or the latest in social engineering will solve everything."
"This is not remarkable, for, as we know, reality is not a function of the event as event, but of the relationship of that event to past, and future, events. We seem here to have a paradox: that the reality of an event, which is not real in itself, arises from the other events which, likewise, in themselves are not real. But this only affirms what we must affirm: that direction is all. And only as we realize this do we live, for our own identity is dependent upon this principal."

"The poem is a little myth of man's capacity of making life meaningful. And in the end, the poem is not a thing we see-it is, rather, a light by which we may see-and what we see is life."
"This could be especially beneficial for the rural communities who find themselves at a disadvantage in transportation and communication capabilities."
"The urge to write poetry is like having an itch. When the itch becomes annoying enough, you scratch it."
"I've been to a lot of places and done a lot of things, but writing was always first. It's a kind of pain I can't do without."
"Poets, we know, are terribly sensitive people, and in my observation one of the things they are most sensitive about is money."
"How do poems grow? They grow out of your life."
"I don't expect you'll hear me writing any poems to the greater glory of Ronald and Nancy Reagan."
"There is nothing more alone than being in a car at night in the rain. I was in the car. And I was glad of it. Between one point on the map and another point on the map, there was the being alone in the car in the rain. They say you are not you except in terms of relation to other people. If there weren't any other people there wouldn't be any you because what you do which is what you are, only has meaning in relation to other people. That is a very comforting thought when you are in the car in the rain at night alone, for then you aren't you, and not being you or anything, you can really lie back and get some rest. It is a vacation from being you. There is only the flow of the motor under you foot spinning that frail thread of sound out of its metal guy like a spider, that filament, that nexus, which isn't really there, between the you which you have just left in one place and the you which you will be where you get to the other place."

"The poet is in the end probably more afraid of the dogmatist who wants to extract the message from the poem and throw the poem away than he is of the sentimentalist who says, ""Oh, just let me enjoy the poem."
