Quotes by Stanley Kunitz


A poet needs to keep his wilderness alive inside him. To remain a poet after forty requires an awareness of your darkest Africa, that part of yourself that will never be tamed.


You must be careful not to deprive the poem of its wild origin.


Be what you are. Give What is yours to give. Have Style. Dare.
