Walt Whitman

Walt Whitman

was an American poet, essayist and journalist.
The art of art, the glory of expression, is simplicity. Nothing is better than simplicity, and the sunlight of letters is simplicity. Nothing is better than simplicity-nothing can make up for excess, or for the lack of definiteness.More Walt Whitman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Oh while I live, to be the ruler of life, not a slave, to meet life as a powerful conqueror, and nothing exterior to me will ever take command of me.More Walt Whitman quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

When I undertake to tell the best, I find I cannot. My tongue is ineffectual on its pivots, My breath will not be obedient to its organs, I become a dumb man.More Walt Whitman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
This face is a dog's snout sniffing for garbage, snakes nest in that mouth, I hear the sibilant threat.More Walt Whitman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
