More From Diane Wakoski
- "But I don’t think that poetry is a good, to use a contemporary word, venue, for current events."
- "I think that great poetry is the most interesting and complex use of the poet’s language at that point in history, and so it’s even more exciting when you read a poet like Yeats, almost 100 years old now, and you think that perhaps no one can really top that."
- "I think that’s what poetry does. It allows people to come together and identify with a common thing that is outside of themselves, but which they identify with from the interior."

- "Part of our western outlook stems from the scientific attitude and its method of isolating the parts of a phenomenon in order to analyze them."― Arthur Erickson
