What is a poet? An unhappy person who conceals such profound anguish in his heart but whose lips are so formed that as sighs and cries pass over them they sound like beautiful music._Soren Kierkegaard Hearts can be well hidden, when you betray them with your tongue. - Neil Gaiman, Instructions Killing for peace is like fucking for virginity- John Avidje Lindqvist Rather than love, than money, than faith, than fame, than fairness...give me truth. Henry David Thoreau via Christopher McCandless While we ourselves are the living graves of murdered beasts, how can we expect any ideal conditions on this earth? George Bernard Shaw I say that one must be a seer, make oneself a seer. The poet makes himself a seer by a long, prodigious, and rational disordering of all the senses. Every form of love, of suffering, of madness; he searches himself, he consumes all the poisons in him, and keeps only their quintessences. This is an unspeakable torture during which he needs all his faith and superhuman strength, and during which he becomes the great patient, the great criminal, the great accursed – and the great learned one! – among men. – For he arrives at the unknown! Because he has cultivated his own soul – which was rich to begin with – more than any other man! He reaches the unknown; and even if, crazed, he ends up by losing the understanding of his visions, at least he has seen them! Let him die charging through those unutterable, unnameable things: other horrible workers will come; they will begin from the horizons where he has succumbed. " - Rimbaud
