Text Quotes
God has pity on kindergarten children  (Yehuda Amichai Quotes) I’ve often said that all poetry is political. This is because real poems deal with a human response to reality and politics is part of reality, history in the making. Even if a poet writes about sitting in a glass house drinking tea, it reflects politics.  (Yehuda Amichai Quotes) And what will you do now? You’ll collect loves Like stamps. You’ve got doubles and no one Will trade you and you have the damaged ones  (Yehuda Amichai Quotes) Tonight I think again of many days that are sacrificed for one night of love. Of the waste and the fruit of the waste, of plenty and of fire. And how painlessly-time  (Yehuda Amichai Quotes) I was a very religious child - I went to synagogue at least once, sometimes twice, a day. And I remember my religiousness as good - I think religion is good for children, especially educated children, because it allows for imagination, a whole imaginative world apart from the practical world  (Yehuda Amichai Quotes) The world of religion isn’t a logical world; that’s why children like it. It’s a world of worked-out fantasies, very similar to children’s stories or fairy tales  (Yehuda Amichai Quotes) And I said to myself: That’s true, hope needs to be like barbed wire to keep out despair, hope must be a mine field.  (Yehuda Amichai Quotes) I think the end is endless. It’s either a big black hole or a big white light or both together. But it’s totally meaningless, because even if someone would explain it, I wouldn’t understand it.  (Yehuda Amichai Quotes) Knowledge of peace passes from country to country, like children’s games, which are so much alike, everywhere.  (Yehuda Amichai Quotes) The phrase I like to use to describe my sense of time-a play on comparative literature-is comparative time.  (Yehuda Amichai Quotes) There are two languages: one as things seem to us and the other of knowledge  (Yehuda Amichai Quotes) It was not an adventure; it was my life  (Yehuda Amichai Quotes) I try to stay a civilian, to live as a human, not as a poet  (Yehuda Amichai Quotes) Jerusalem is a port city on the shore of eternity  (Yehuda Amichai Quotes) From the place where we are right, flowers will not grow in the spring  (Yehuda Amichai Quotes) Behind all this, some great happiness is hiding  (Yehuda Amichai Quotes) My poems are political in the deeper sense of the word. Political means to live in your time, to be a man of your time  (Yehuda Amichai Quotes) The memory of my father is wrapped up in white paper, like sandwiches taken for a day of work. Just as a magician takes towers and rabbits out of his hat, he drew love from his small body  (Yehuda Amichai Quotes) A flock of sheep near the airport or a high voltage generator beside the orchard: these combinations open up my life like a wound, but they also heal it. That’s why my feelings always come in twos  (Yehuda Amichai Quotes) Even if a poet writes about sitting in a glass house drinking tea, it reflects politics  (Yehuda Amichai Quotes) And as we stray further from love, we multiply the words. Had we remained together we could have become a silence  (Yehuda Amichai Quotes) Love is like a reservoir of kindness and pleasure, like silos and pools during a siege  (Yehuda Amichai Quotes) Knowledge of peace passes from country to country, like children’s games, which are so much alike, everywhere  (Yehuda Amichai Quotes) I’ve often said that all poetry is political. This is because real poems deal with a human response to reality and politics is part of reality, history in the making. Even if a poet writes about sitting in a glass house drinking tea, it reflects politics  (Yehuda Amichai Quotes) I think the end is endless. It’s either a big black hole or a big white light or both together. But it’s totally meaningless, because even if someone would explain it, I wouldn’t understand it  (Yehuda Amichai Quotes) The reason a poet is a poet is to write poems, not to advertise himself as a poet  (Yehuda Amichai Quotes) And I said to myself: That’s true, hope needs to be like barbed wire to keep out despair, hope must be a mine field  (Yehuda Amichai Quotes)
