There is the view that poetry should improve your life. I think people confuse it with the Salvation Army  (John Ashbery Quotes) The sun fades like the spreading Of a peacock’s tail, as though twilight Might be read as a warning to those desperate For easy solutions.  (John Ashbery Quotes) I lost my ridiculous accent without acquiring another  (John Ashbery Quotes) Each servant stamps the reader with a look  (John Ashbery Quotes) The winter does what it can for its children  (John Ashbery Quotes) Not until it starts to stink does the inevitable happen  (John Ashbery Quotes) What I like about music is its ability to be convincing, to carry an argument through successfully to the finish, though the terms of the argument remain unknown quantities  (John Ashbery Quotes) The evening light was like honey in the trees When you left me and walked to the end of the street Where the sunset abruptly ended. The wedding-cake drawbridge lowered itself To the fragile forget-me-not flower. You climbed aboard. Burnt horizons suddenly paved with golden stones, Dreams I had, including suicide, Puff out the hot-air balloon now. It is bursting, it is about to burst  (John Ashbery Quotes) Somewhere someone is traveling furiously toward you, At incredible speed, traveling day and night, Through blizzards and desert heat, across torrents, through narrow passes.

Remain mysterious; Rather than be pure, accept yourself as numerous  (John Ashbery Quotes) Extreme patience and persistence are required, Yet everybody succeeds at this before being handed The surprise box lunch of the rest of his life.  (John Ashbery Quotes) Death is a new office building filled with modern furniture, A wise thing, but which has no purpose for us.  (John Ashbery Quotes) I write with experiences in mind, but I don’t write about them, I write out of them  (John Ashbery Quotes) Silly girls your heads full of boys  (John Ashbery Quotes) The facts of history have been too well rehearsed  (John Ashbery Quotes) I tried each thing, only some were immortal and free  (John Ashbery Quotes) Until only infinity remained of beauty  (John Ashbery Quotes) The poem is sad because it wants to be yours, and cannot be  (John Ashbery Quotes) Things can harden meaningfully in the moment of indecision  (John Ashbery Quotes) Will occur as time grows more open about it  (John Ashbery Quotes) Where then shall hope and fear their objects find?  (John Ashbery Quotes) I feel that poetry is going on all the time inside, an underground stream  (John Ashbery Quotes) What is the past, what is it all for? A mental sandwich?  (John Ashbery Quotes) Most reckless things are beautiful in some way, and recklessness is what makes experimental art beautiful, just as religions are beautiful because of the strong possibilities that they are founded on nothing  (John Ashbery Quotes) I like poems you can tack all over with a hammer and there are no hollow places  (John Ashbery Quotes) I write with experiences in mind, but I don’t write about them, I write out of them  (John Ashbery Quotes) And so we turn the page over. To think of starting. This is all there is  (John Ashbery Quotes) I don’t want to read what is going to slide down easily; there has to be some crunch, a certain amount of resilience  (John Ashbery Quotes) Did I say that? One says so many things, and the problem is they all get written down  (John Ashbery Quotes)
