e. e. cummings
A poet is somebody who feels, and who expresses his feeling through words.
No man is an Iland, intire of itselfe; every man is a peece of the Continent, a part of the maine; if a Clod bee washed away by the Sea, Europe is the lesse, as well as if a Promontorie were, as well as if a Manor of thy friends or of thine owne were; any mans death diminishes me, because I am involved in Mankinde; And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee.
Devotions upon Emergent Occasions John Donne, 1624
"I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:"- Robert Frost, 1925
