William Carlos Williams- Quotes

William Carlos Williams

"Poets are damned but they are not blind, they see with the eyes of the angels."

"It is not what you say that matters but the manner in which you say it; there lies the secret of the ages."

"If they give you lined paper, write the other way."

I love your blog, and any blog that pertains to poetry and some of my favorite poets. William Warlos Williams is in that group.
