More From Robert Morgan
- "Part of what we love about poetry is the fact that it seems ancient, that it has an authority of ancient language and ancient form, and that it’s timeless, that it reaches back."
- "I don’t think poetry is something that can be taught. We can encourage young writers, but what you can’t teach them is the very essence of poetry."
- "The decision to write in prose instead of poetry is made more by the readers than by writers. Almost no one is interested in reading narrative in verse."

- "I work on words, mostly, toward them being poetry or short stories, and then some of those become songs. They all find their place in the world, but they all start off in the same place. I’m always painting and drawing as well, and it’s an ongoing creative assignment."― P. J. Harvey
- "I want to see as many movies as I can and I covet a lot of weird influential movies."― Kat Dennings
