The older I get, the more I feel almost beautiful  (Sharon Olds Quotes) A family is a mystery  (Sharon Olds Quotes) It might be a bad thing, not to know what’s going on in the world. I can’t say I really approve of it.  (Sharon Olds Quotes) We’re all taking on too much, we’re all asking too much of ourselves. We’re all wishing we could do more, and therefore just doing more.  (Sharon Olds Quotes) There are some fine books and essays about that. Lewis Hyde has written about alcoholism and poets and the role that society gives its writers - encouraging them to die  (Sharon Olds Quotes) Because a poem is not written while running or while answering the phone. It’s written in whatever minutes one has. Sometimes you have half an hour.  (Sharon Olds Quotes) I’m probably so out of it at my age that I don’t know what people think  (Sharon Olds Quotes) Take your vitamins. Exercise. Just work to love yourself as much as you can - not more than the people around you but not so much less  (Sharon Olds Quotes) Writing or making anything-a poem, a bird feeder, a chocolate cake-has self-respect in it.

But one might not have heard about all the other villages’ horrors at the same time  (Sharon Olds Quotes) Poems come from ordinary experiences and objects, I think. Out of memory - a dress I lent my daughter on her way back to college; a newspaper photograph of war; a breast self-exam; the tooth fairy; Calvinist parents who beat up their children; a gesture of love; seeing oneself naked over age 50 in a set of bright hotel bathroom mirrors  (Sharon Olds Quotes) The teaching is very rewarding, and very time-consuming, and very exhausting.

Not that anyone else wrote them. But we know that only people who are really close to us care about our personal experience  (Sharon Olds Quotes) If I wrote in a sonnet form, I would be distorting. Or if I had some great new idea for line breaks and I used it in a poem, but it’s really not right for that poem, but I wanted it, that would be distorting.  (Sharon Olds Quotes) I think that there are fiction writers for whom that works well. I could never do it. I feel as if, by the time I see that it’s a poem, it’s almost written in my head somewhere.  (Sharon Olds Quotes) I was very afraid that I wouldn’t be able to do this job well. And the time never came back.  (Sharon Olds Quotes) I’m not sure that the benefit - as a writer and as a citizen - that I would get from reading at least the front page of the Times every day or every other day would outweigh the depression.  (Sharon Olds Quotes) So I did quit coffee and I did quit smoking. But I haven’t managed that with drinking!  (Sharon Olds Quotes) Their spirits and their visions are embodied in their craft. And so is mine. It’s not Jane Saw Puff. But the clarity of Jane Saw Puff is precious to me.  (Sharon Olds Quotes) Many poets write books. They’ll tell you: Well, I’ve got my next book, but there are two poems I need to write, one about x, one about y. This is a wonder to me.  (Sharon Olds Quotes) Their spirits and their visions are embodied in their craft. And so is mine. It’s not Jane Saw Puff. But the clarity of Jane Saw Puff is precious to me  (Sharon Olds Quotes) Well, ‘The Wellspring’ was written from 1983 to 1986.
