| Just what is it about certain famous quotes from great poetry that leads
people to celebrate them?
We all know that some eminently quotable quotes somehow gain the status of joining the accepted body of familiar quotations but, as well as being capable of moving the human soul, have such profoundly intriguing quotes a basis in an "inborn nature" that all human beings may be held to substantially have in common?
Some famous and familiar quotations that may even qualify as being " Central Poetry Insights " are set out in the following scrollable panel:-
William Wordsworth, John Keats and others have left us much food for thought in some of the things they assert about the insights of Poets.
I think continually of those who were truly great.
Sir Stephen Spender
Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard
Wisdom married to immortal verse.
Choice word and measured phrase above the reach
Poetry is the breath and finer spirit of all knowledge.
Poets utter great and wise things which they do not themselves understand.
Poetry is more philosophical and of higher value than history; for poetry tends to express the universal, history the particular.
The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
One demands two things of a poem. Firstly, it must be a well-made verbal object that does honor to the language in which it is written. Secondly, it must say something significant about a reality common to us all, but perceived from a unique perspective. What the poet says has never been said before, but, once he has said it, his readers recognize its validity for themselves.
W. H. Auden
We have assembled an hopefully definitive collection of the insights of the Mystics and Poets. Due to our respect for the profundity of these insights we collectively refer to their authors as - The Sage.
The name of our Web site "Age-of-the-Sage" indicates that we consider that the guidance provided by the wisdoms of the Mystics and Poets should be taken very seriously indeed.
We hope to persuade you that thanks to the QUITE AWESOME insights of - The Sage - innate human nature can actually be explored, and mapped, in efforts to better comprehend Human Spirituality and Being!!!
We have identified a range of KEY quotations that "Somehow Encapsulate" Enlightenments, Wisdoms and Spiritual Insights about these "deep things", and also about another highly significant area of agreement between world faiths that is to do with the relationship between "Spirituality and the wider world":-
Science can not do this but
the Mystics and Poets can!!!
