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.
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
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.
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
Cricket remains for me the game of games, the sanspareil, the great metaphor, the best marriage ever devised of mind and body. For meit remains the Proust of pastimes, the subtlest and most Poetic, the most past-and-present; whose beauty can lie equally in days, in a whole, or in one tiny phrase, a blinding split second.John Robert Fowles
For me a work of art must be an elevated interpretation of nature. The search for the ideal has been the purpose of my life. In landscape or seascape, I love above all the Poetic motif.william-adolphe bouguereau
In exploring the shared language and Poetic sensibilities of all animals, I am working toward rediscovering the common ground that once existed when people lived in harmony with animals. The images depict a world that is without beginning or end, here or there, past or present. I hope that the overall effect is an experience of wonder and contemplation, serenity and hope.gregory colbert
One man's piss-soaked sadomasochistic orgy is another man's Poetic ecstasy.dan savage
The characteristic Poetic strategy of our time refine your singularities is something Auden has not learned; so his best poems are very peculiarly good, nearly the most interesting poems of our time. When he writes badly, we can afford to be angry at him, and he can afford to laugh at us.Randall Jarrell
Before seeing Truffaut 's Small Change, I was afraid it was going to be one of those simple, natural films about childhood which I generally try to avoid I'm just not good enough to go to them. But this series of sketches on the general theme of the resilience of children turns out to be that rarity a Poetic comedy that's really funny.Pauline Kael
There can be no society without poetry, but society can never be realized as poetry, it is never Poetic. Sometimes the two terms seek to break apart. They cannot.Octavio Paz
I feel an intense intimacy with those who have this loathing interest in me. Further than this, I know what they mean, I sympathize with them, I understand them. There should be a name (as Poetic as love) for this relationship between loather and loathed; it is of the closest and more full of passion than incest.laura riding
Futurism and Cubism are comparable in importance tot the invention of perspective, for which they substituted a new concept op space. All subsequent movements were latent in them or brought about by them.. ..the two movements cannot be regarded as in opposition to each other, even though they started from opposite points; I maintain (an idea approved by Apollinaire and later by Matisse ) that they are two extremes of the same sign, tending to coincide at certain points which only the Poetic instinct of the painter can discover: poetry being the content and raison d’être of art.

O brave poets, keep back nothing; Nor mix falsehood with the whole! Look up Godward! speak the truth in Worthy song from earnest soul! Hold, in high Poetic duty, Truest Truth the fairest Beauty.
They best can judge a poet's worth, Who oft themselves have known The pangs of a Poetic birth By labours of their own.william cowper
...Mantras are not thought of as products of discursive thought, human wisdom or Poetic fantasy, but ”flash-lights of the eternal truth, seen by those eminent men who have come to super sensuous contact with the Unseen.
