Hart Crane Quotes and Sayings

I hope you find great value in these Quotes by Hart Crane from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

The fact that The Bridge contains folk lore and other
material suitable to the epic form need not therefore
prove its failure as a long lyric poem,
with interrelated sections.
- Hart Crane

The bottom of the sea is cruel.
- Hart Crane

I got so I simply gagged everytime I sat before my desk to write an ad.
- Hart Crane

I think the sea has thrown itself upon me and been answered,
at least in part, and I believe I am a little changed -
not essentially,
but changed and transubstantiated as anyone is who
has asked a question and been answered.
- Hart Crane

 

It has taken a great deal of energy,
which has not been so difficult to summon as the necessary patience to wait,
simply wait much of the time - until my instincts assured
me that I had assembled my materials in proper order
for a final welding into their natural form.
- Hart Crane

And I have been able to give freedom and life which
was acknowledged in the ecstasy of walking hand in
hand across the most beautiful bridge of the world,
the cables enclosing us and pulling us upward in such
a dance as I have never walked and never can walk with another.
- Hart Crane

Your primary presumption that The Bridge was proffered
as an epic has no substantial foundation.
You know quite well that I doubt that our present stage
of cultural development is so ordered yet as to provide
the means or method for such an organic manifestation as that.
- Hart Crane

And inasmuch as the bridge is a symbol of all such
poetry as I am interested in writing it is my present
fancy that a year from now I'll be more contented working
in an office than ever before.
- Hart Crane

The form of my poem rises out of a past that so overwhelms
the present with its worth and vision that I'm at a
loss to explain my delusion that there exist any real
links between that past and a future worthy of it.
- Hart Crane

Cause and effect are two sides of one fact.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Believe that life is worth living,
and your belief will help create the fact.
- William James

Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact.
Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.
- Marcus Aurelius

The fact is, that to do anything in the world worth doing,
we must not stand back shivering and thinking of the cold and danger,
but jump in and scramble through as well as we can.

To kill an error is as good a service as,
and sometimes even better than,
the establishing of a new truth or fact.

We cannot change our past.
We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way.
We cannot change the inevitable.
The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have,
and that is our attitude.

and 90% how I react to it.
- Charles R. Swindoll

Friends love misery, in fact.
Sometimes, especially if we are too lucky
or too successful or too pretty,
our misery is the only thing that endears us to our friends.
- Erica Jong

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.
Attitude to me is more important than facts.
It is more important than the past, than education, than money,
than circumstances, than failures, than success,
than what other people think or say or do.
It is more important than appearance, gift, or skill.
It will make or break a company ... a church ... a home.
The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day
regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.
We cannot change our past ...
we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way.
We cannot change the inevitable.
The only thing we can do is play on the string we have,
and that is our attitude.
I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me
and 90 percent how I react to it.
And so it is with you ...
we are in charge of our attitudes.
- Charles Swindoll

The mind exists in time, in fact the mind is time;
it exists in the past and the future.
And remember, time consists of only two tenses,
the past and the future.
The present is not part of time,
the present is part of eternity.
- Osho

The basic fact about human existence is not that it is a tragedy,
but that it is a bore.
It is not so much a war as an endless standing in line.
- H. L. Mencken

Equality may perhaps be a right, but no power on earth
can ever turn it into a fact.
- Honore de Balzac

It is a scientific fact that your body will not absorb
cholesterol if you take it from another person's plate.

Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition.
The immature mind often mistakes one for the other,
or assumes that the greater the love, the greater the jealousy -
in fact, they're almost incompatible;
one emotion hardly leaves room for the other.
Both at once can produce unbearable turmoil.
- Robert Heinlein

by the presentiment of somebody,

world is a member of the United States Congress just
home from a three-day fact-finding trip.

This myth asserts that people simply either

That's nonsense; in fact, the opposite is true.
Leaders are made rather than born.
- Warren G. Bennis

The great secret of doctors, known only to their wives,
but still hidden from the public, is that most things
get better by themselves;
most things,
in fact, are better in the morning.
- Lewis Thomas

Every natural fact is a symbol of some spiritual fact.
Every appearance in nature corresponds to some state of the mind,
