„Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality.“

— T.S. Eliot 20th century English author 1888 - 1965
Context: The bad poet is usually unconscious where he ought to be conscious, and conscious where he ought to be unconscious. Both errors tend to make him "personal." Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. But, of course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want to escape from these things.

— Jerome David Salinger American writer 1919 - 2010
Context: I don't know. Poets are always taking the weather so personally. They're always sticking their emotions in things that have no emotions.

„The individual aspiration is always defeated of its perfect fruition and expression, but it is never lost; it passes into the conglomerate being of the race.“

— Don Marquis American writer 1878 - 1937
Context: The individual aspiration is always defeated of its perfect fruition and expression, but it is never lost; it passes into the conglomerate being of the race. The way to encourage yourself about the human race is to look at it first from a distance; look at the lights on the high spots.
