Here are some quotes by Robert Frost that I like:
A poem begins in delight and ends in wisdom.
A poet never takes notes. You never take notes in a love affair.
I would have written of me on my stone: I had a lover’s quarrel with the world.
By working faithfully eight hours a day you may eventually get to be boss and work twelve hours a day.
Don’t ever take a fence down until you know why it was put up.
Education doesn’t change life much. It just lifts trouble to a higher plane of regard.
Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.
Happiness makes up in height for what it lacks in length.
I am a writer of books in retrospect. I talk in order to understand; I teach in order to learn.
I have never started a poem yet whose end I knew. Writing a poem is discovering.
If one by one we counted people out for the least sin, it wouldn’t take us long to get so we had no one left to live with. For to be social is to be forgiving.
Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired.
No tears in the writer, no tears in the reader. No surprise in the writer, no surprise in the reader.
Poetry is what gets lost in translation.
Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.
Some say the world will end in fire, some say in ice.
Style is that which indicates how the writer takes himself and what he is saying. It is the mind skating circles around itself as it moves forward.
