Marianne Moore Quotes

Marianne Moore Quotes

Any writer overwhelmingly honest about pleasing himself is almost sure to please others.

... imaginary gardens with real toads in them ...
... if you demand on one hand,
the raw material of poetry in
all its rawness and
that which is on the other hand
genuine, then you are interested in poetry.

... a place for the genuine,
Hands that can grasp, eyes
that can dilate, hair that can rise

You are not male or female, but a plan
deep-set within the heart of man.

They fought the enemy, we fight fat living and self-pity. Shine, o shine, unfalsifying sun, on this sick scene.
