Poetry Month: Famous Poets’ Views On Life

Life loves to be taken by the lapel and told: ”I’m with you kid. Let’s go.” – Maya Angelou

Life is divided into three terms – that which was, which is, and which will be. Let us learn from the past to profit by the present, and from the present to live better in the future. – William Wordsworth

Life is better than death, I believe, if only because it is less boring, and because it has fresh peaches in it. – Alice Walker

Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death. – Anais Nin

Life is the only real counselor; wisdom unfiltered through personal experience does not become a part of the moral tissue. – Edith Wharton

Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit. – Khalil Gibran

Life is an incurable disease. – Abraham Cowley

In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life – It Goes On. – Robert Frost
