Quote for Today: Robert Frost

  A poem begins with a lump in the throat; a homesickness or a love sickness. It is a reaching-out toward expression; an effort to find fulfillment. A complete poem is one where an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words. ― Robert Frost Public Domain Image via Pixabay

Quote for Today: Roger Rosenblatt

  Why, for example, do the great writers use anticipation instead of surprise? Because surprise is merely an instrument of the unusual, whereas anticipation of a consequence enlarges our understanding of what is happening. --Roger Rosenblatt, "How to Write Great", New York Times, July 29, 2012 Image: Around the corner © Bruce Krasting with CCLicense
