Citáty William Carlos Williams


„Měli duše jak věčně zastlané postele.“

„It's a strange courage
you give me ancient star:
Shine alone in the sunrise
toward which you lend no part!“


„We sit and talk,
quietly, with long lapses of silence
and I am aware of the stream
that has no language, coursing
beneath the quiet heaven of
your eyes
which has no speech“
Paterson

„I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox

and which
you were probably
saving
for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold“

„It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there.“
Asphodel, That Greeny Flower and Other Love Poems: That Greeny Flower

„You lethargic, waiting upon me,
waiting for the fire and I
attendant upon you, shaken by your beauty

Shaken by your beauty
Shaken.“
Paterson

„Hold back the edges of your gown, Ladies, we are going through hell.“


„Time is a storm in which we are all lost.“

„It is at the edge of the
petal that love waits“

„As the rain falls
so does
your love

bathe every
open
object of the world“

„I think all writing is a disease. You can't stop it.“
