On Wednesdays, I want to share some cool quotes with you (posting early this week…still waiting on my new internet service). I find loads of them in the books I read (frequently classics, but sometimes they’re not). Short and sweet…classy quotes. It’s not much…”just a mission statement.” (there’s a little Jerry McGuire quote for ya).
Here’s my first Wednesday quote…let me know what you think of it! I haven’t read many of Koch’s poems, but this quote makes me want to. It’s exactly the way I want to write novels–capturing the heartaches, but offering hope instead of typical postmodern hopelessness.
|Kenneth Koch, poet|
“I thought, ‘There are a lot of poets who have the courage to look into the abyss, but there are very few who have the courage to look happiness in the face and write about it,’ which is what I wanted to be able to do.”–Kenneth Koch
