Robert Pinsky Quotes

Robert Pinsky Quote: “When I had no roof I made audacity my roof.”
Robert Pinsky Quote: “The medium of poetry is a human body: the column of air inside the chest, shaped into signifying sounds in the larynx and the mouth. In this sense, poetry is just as physical or bodily an art as dancing.”
Robert Pinsky Quote: “Whatever makes a child want to glue macaroni on a paper plate and paint the assemblage and see it on the refrigerator – that has always been strong in me.”
Robert Pinsky Quote: “Autobiography is a genre notorious for falsehood.”
Robert Pinsky Quote: “The heart grows brutal feeding on fantasies.”
Robert Pinsky Quote: “Deciding to remember, and what to remember, is how we decide who we are.”
Robert Pinsky Quote: “The poetry I love is written with someone’s voice and I believe its proper culmination is to be read with someone’s voice. And the human voice in that sense is not electronically reproduced or amplified.”
Robert Pinsky Quote: “An underestimated element in poetry, that reading aloud makes clear, is the pause. I mean especially the force of a pause or a couple of pauses close together, contrasted with a longer unit of grammar.”
Robert Pinsky Quote: “There is something cathartic about having absolute loss articulated.”
Robert Pinsky Quote: “If a poem is written well, it was written with the poet’s voice and for a voice. Reading a poem silently instead of saying a poem is like the difference between staring at sheet music and actually humming or playing the music on an instrument.”
Robert Pinsky Quote: “Poetry’s medium is not merely light as air, it is air: vital and deep as ordinary breath.”
Robert Pinsky Quote: “The medium of poetry is not words, the medium of poetry is not lines-it is the motion of air inside the human body, coming out through the chest and the voice box and through the mouth to shape sounds that have meaning. It’s bodily.”
Robert Pinsky Quote: “In jazz, as in poetry, there is always that play between what’s regular and what’s wild. That has always appealed to me.”
Robert Pinsky Quote: “In the particular presence of memorable language we can find a reminder of our ability to know and retain knowledge itself: the brightness wherein all things come to see.”
Robert Pinsky Quote: “For Aliki Barnstone, poetry seems a natural medium. The vision and cadences of these poems suggest a sensibility for which poetry is as inevitable as breathing or eating.”
Robert Pinsky Quote: “To talk about the reality of life here and the work that you do here at the university.”
Robert Pinsky Quote: “Poetry’s medium is the individual chest and throat and mouth of whoever undertakes to say the poem.”
Robert Pinsky Quote: “Sometimes the ideas that mean the most to you will feel true long before you can quite formulate them or justify them.”
Robert Pinsky Quote: “Poetry is the most bodily of the arts.”
Robert Pinsky Quote: “A sentence is like a tune. A memorable sentence gives its emotion a melodic shape. You want to hear it again, say it – in a way, to hum it to yourself. You desire, if only in the sound studio of your imagination, to repeat the physical experience of that sentence. That craving, emotional and intellectual but beginning in the body with a certain gesture of sound, is near the heart of poetry.”
Robert Pinsky Quote: “Art will not solve your problems. It will not enable you to live merrily.”
Robert Pinsky Quote: “If what you want to do is make good art, decide whats good and try to imitate it.”
Robert Pinsky Quote: “This is one of the great human mysteries: why do works of art about bad things such as loss and deprivation make us feel good?”
Robert Pinsky Quote: “Poetic language is singularly appropriate for recounting the life of the king who is traditionally accepted as the author of the poetic psalms, some of which are included in the narrative.”
