Marianne Moore
Quotations



"...It is not Hardy the novelist
and Hardy the poet, but one man interpreting life as emotion.
"
- From the poem "Picking and Choosing"

"Any writer overwhelminging honest about pleasing himself is almost sure to please others."
 
"Poetry. I, too, dislike it. Reading it, however, with a perfect contempt for it, one discovers in it, after all, a place for the genuine."
