„Wolf's wool is the best wool, but it cannot be sheared, because the wolf will not comply. With knowledge as with wolves' surliness, the student studies voluntarily, refusing to be less than individual. He "gives his opinion and then rests upon it"; he renders service when there is no reward, and is too reclusive for some things to seem to touch him; not because he has no feeling but because he has so much.“ Complete Poems


„Truly as the sun can rot or mend, love can make one bestial or make a beast a man.“ Complete Poems

„Superior people never make long visits.“

„The self does not realize itself most fully when self-realization is its most constant aim.“

„... imaginary gardens with real toads in them...
... if you demand on one hand,
the raw material of poetry in
all its rawness and
that which is on the other hand
genuine, then you are interested in poetry.“
Complete Poems
