The butterfly, a cabbage-white, (His honest idiocy of flight) Will never now, it is too late, Master the art of flying straight.More Robert Graves quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Take your delight in momentariness, Walk between dark and dark a shining space With the grave 's narrowness, though not its peace.More Robert Graves quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The function of poetry is religious invocation of the muse; its use is the experience of mixed exaltation and horror that her presence excites.More Robert Graves quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Abstract reason, formerly the servant of practical human reasons, has everywhere become its master, and denies poetry any excuse for existence.
Though philosophers like to define poetry as irrational fancy, for us it is practical, humorous, reasonable way of being ourselves. Of never acquiescing in a fraud; of never accepting the secondary-rate in poetry, painting, music, love, friends. Of safeguarding our poetic institutions against the encroachments of mechanized, insensate, inhumane, abstract rationality.More Robert Graves quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
