Thrift is the really romantic thing; economy is more romantic than extravagance... thrift is poetic because it is creative; waste is unpoetic because it is waste... if a man could undertake to make use of all the things in his dustbin, he would be a broader genius than Shakespeare.
One of the deepest and strangest of all human moods is the mood which will suddenly strike us perhaps in a garden at night , or deep in sloping meadows, the feeling that every flower and leaf has just uttered something stupendously direct and important, and that we have by a prodigy of imbecility not heard or understood it. There is a certain Poetic value , and that a genuine one, in this sense of having missed the full meaning of things. There is beauty , not only in wisdom , but in this dazed and dramatic ignorance .gilbert keith chesterton
Other forms include the Varnam, a completely composed piece, designed to show a Raga in all its pristine purity. Pada and Javali are two kinds of love-songs depicting Poetic imagery characteristic of the Bhakthi movement. The Tillana is rhythmic and is in very fast tempo.
Various advocates and critics of panentheism find evidence of incipient or implicit forms of panentheism present in religious thought as early as 1300 BCE. Hartshorne discovers the first indication of panentheistic themes in Ikhnaton (1375–1358 BCE), the Egyptian pharaoh often considered the first monotheist . In his Poetic description of the sun god, Ikhnaton avoids both the separation of God from the world that will characterize theism and the identification of God with the world that will characterize pantheism. …Early Vedantic thought, as well as some modern Indian thought, implies panentheism in non-Advaita forms that understand non-dualism as inclusive of differences.John Culp
That willing suspension of disbelief for the moment, which constitutes Poetic faith.Samuel Taylor Coleridge
A work of art must narrate something that does not appear within its outline. The objects and figures represented in it must likewise poetically tell you of something that is far away from them and also of what their shapes materially hide from us. A certain dog painted by Courbet (French 19th century painter, ed.) is like the story of a Poetic and romantic hunt. (1919)giorgio de chirico
Oh for a seat in some Poetic nook,Just hid with trees and sparkling with a brook!leigh hunt
Thus it comes about that the endeavour of primitive people to make a clean sweep of all their troubles generally takes the form of a grand hunting out and expulsion of devils and ghosts. They think that if they can only shake off these their accursed tormentors, they will make a fresh start in life, happy and innocent; the tales of Eden and the old Poetic golden age will come true again.james frazer
Paul Valéry insists on the inescapable commitment of the Poetic language to the negation. The verses of this language “ne parlent jamais que de choses absentes.” They speak of that which, though absent, haunts the established universe of discourse and behavior as its most tabooed possibility neither heaven nor hell, neither good nor evil but simply “le bonheur.”herbert marcuse
Shakespeare alternated between musical surrenders to social prestige and magnificent fits of Poetic remorse.laura riding
The new "ambiguity" means, in a way adjudged favorable to literary, Poetic, intellectually and psychologically well-devised and praiseworthily executed linguistic performance, uncertainty of meaning, or difficulty for the interpreter in identifying just what the meaning in question is: it means the old meanings of ambiguity with a difference. It means uncertainty of meaning (of a word or combination of words) purposefully incorporated in a literary composition for the attainment of the utmost possible variety of meaning-play compressible within the verbal limits of the composition.laura riding
And so the Word had breath, and wrought With human hands the creed of creeds In loveliness of perfect deeds, More strong than all Poetic thoughts; Which he may read that binds the sheaf, Or builds the house, or digs the grave, And those wild eyes that watch the waves In roarings round the coral reef.
For wheresoe'er I turn my ravished eyes, Gay gilded scenes and shining prospects rise, Poetic fields encompass me around, And still I seem to tread on classic ground.joseph addison
Historical sense and Poetic sense should not, in the end, be contradictory, for if poetry is the little myth we make, history is the big myth we live, and in our living, constantly remake.Robert Penn Warren
Schiller writes in a letter [to Goethe, 17 December 1795] of a ‘Poetic mood’. I think I know what he means, I think I am familiar with it myself. It is the mood of receptivity to nature and one in which one’s thoughts seem as vivid as nature itself.ludwig wittgenstein
The plain fact is that many of the reputations which today occupy the Poetic limelight are such as would crumble immediately if poetry such as Empson's, with its passion, logic, and formal beauty, were to become widely known.william empson
I am more and more engrossed with the single Poetic theme of Life and Death, for there doesn't seem to be any question more directly relevant than this one of what survives of all the beloved.alun lewis
Those who present directly and immediately the new forms and symbols are the artists the dramatists, the musicians, the painters, the dancers, the poets, and those poets of the religious sphere we call saints. They portray the new symbols in the form of images Poetic, aural, plastic, or dramatic, as the case may be. They live out their imaginations.rollo may
The rhythmic pattern of the poem, which forces continuity of attention – incites a pleasurable compulsion to ‘follow’ – is either a tried metrical suasion-contrivance or a specially invented pattern of physical insistences, equally, if not more, binding in its effect on the reader. From a straight linguistic point of view, there is room for wonder if there is not latent vice in this environment in which pleasurable physically-compelled responses, produced by incidents of Poetic utterance, are identified with the Good.laura riding
O Caledonia! stern and wild, Meet nurse for a Poetic child! Land of brown heath and shaggy wood, Land of the mountain and the flood, Land of my sires! what mortal hand Can e'er untie the filial band, That knits me to thy rugged strand!
Tantra is a very very Poetic approach, not arithmetical. And tantra believes in love, not in mathematics. It believes in sudden enlightenment.
Fernando Pessoa is the most extraordinary poet of Orpheu and the most astonishing Poetic phenomenon of this century.
