The poet produces the beautiful by fixing his attention on something real.
      - Simone Weil

To have great poets there must be great audiences too.
      - Walt Whitman

A poet can survive everything but a misprint.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde)

In Spring the Poet is glad,
  And in Summer the Poet is gay;
    But in Autumn the Poet is sad,
      And has something sad to say.
      - Byron Forceythe Willson, Autumn Song

For pointed satire I would Buckhurst choose,
  The best man with the worst-natures muse.
      - John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of Rochester,

That mighty orb of song,
  The divine Milton.
      - William Wordsworth, Excursion
         (bk. I, l. 252)

And when a damp
  Fell round the path of Milton, in his hand
    The Thing became a trumpet; whence he blew
      Soul-animating strains--alas! too few.
      - William Wordsworth,
        Miscellaneous Sonnets, Pt. II, Scorn Not the Sonnet; Critic, You Have Frowned

Blessings be with them, and eternal praise,
  Who gave us nobler loves, and nobler cares,--
    The Poets, who on earth have made us heirs
      Of truth and pure delight by heavenly lays!
      - William Wordsworth, Personal Talk

I thought of Chatterton, the marvellous Boy,
  The sleepless Soul that perished in his pride;
    OF him who walked in glory and in joy,
      Following his plough, along the mountain side.
      - William Wordsworth,
        Resolution and Independence (st. 7)

Poets, like whores, are only hated by each other.
      - William Wycherley
