More From Laura Riding
- "Because most people are not sufficiently employed in themselves, they run about loose, hungering for employment, and satisfy themselves in various supererogatory occupations. The easiest of these occupations, which have all to do with making things already made, is the making of people: it is called the art of friendship."
- "Poetry brings all possible experience to the same degree: a degree in the consciousness beyond which the consciousness itself cannot go."
- "To a poet the mere making of a poem can seem to solve the problem of truth, but only a problem of art is solved in poetry."
