Poetry is the one place where people can speak their original human mind. It is the outlet for people to say in public what is known in private.

The only thing that can save the world is the reclaiming of the awareness of the world. That’s what poetry does.

Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It’s that time of night lying in bed thinking what you really think making the private world public that’s what the poet does.

I want people to bow as they see me and say he is gifted with poetry he has seen the presence of the creator.

Allen Ginsberg Poetry Quotes
