It doesn't matter who my father was; it matters who I remember he was.
God has a brown voice, as soft and full as beer.
The beautiful feeling after writing a poem is on the whole better even than after sex, and that's saying a lot.
Saints have no moderation, nor do poets, just exuberance.
The joy that isn't shared dies young.
Put your ear down close to your soul and listen hard.
Even without wars, life is dangerous.
God owns heaven but He craves the earth.
In a dream you are never eighty.
Death's in the good-bye.
Need is not quite belief.
Live or die, but don't poison everything.
I am not immortal. Faustus and I are the also-ran.
