Robert Creeley Quotes and Sayings

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

Again like Williams, with the emphasis now regrettable,
when a man makes a poem, makes it mind you,
he takes the words as he finds them lying interrelated about him.
- Robert Creeley

- Robert Creeley

Suddenly the whole imagination of writing and editorial
and newspaper and all these presumptions about who am I reading this,
and who else other people may be, and all that,
it's so grimly brutal!
- Robert Creeley

It's as though all the terms of a family were present
at one time rather than his dad and his mum.
Not just a present authority, but the resident memory

It's the classic story form.
All staying equal, or proving equal,

this will all continue, and the next time around,

or who his friend John really was, and so on.
- Robert Creeley

do with anything like that.

very responsible and perceptive,
thoughtful, intimate, and contriving a quote statement.
- Robert Creeley

And what's fascinating in The Ten Thousand Things is
that although there's time,
an inexorable time of the three generations of lives,
actively present, but place is the time,
time doesn't really have to do with simply the human experience of it.
- Robert Creeley

First you wonder if they're separate stories,
but no, they're not, they're contingent stories and they form a pattern.
And you begin with some of the island as the place
to which the heroine of the book returns.
- Robert Creeley

Courage doesn't always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice
at the end of the day, saying,
"I will try again tomorrow."

Then, and only then, take action -
from a peaceful heart.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie PHOTO

the basic goods of life, with awe,

It's one of life's great paradoxes ...
Accepting with gratitude whatever life throws at us
is critical to happiness.
Yet without a goal and commitment, life lose much of its value.
The best we can do in the face of this paradox
is to play to win, but be cheerful in defeat
and ready to play again.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

If you have an important point to make,
don't try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver.
Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again.
Then hit it a third time - a tremendous whack.

in the dirt once or twice.
Up again, you shall never be so afraid of a tumble.

- William Penn

Never cease loving a person, and never give up hope for him,
for even the prodigal son who had fallen most low,
could still be saved; the bitterest enemy
and also he who was your friend could again be your friend;
love that has grown cold can kindle
- Soren Kierkegaard

And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of his hand.

If you stand up and be counted,
from time to time you may get yourself knocked down.
But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again.
A man flattened by conformity stays down for good.

Choose how you invest your time, and honor your choices.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Relax, and life becomes simple again.

You can learn how to let go of the past.
Whether you have experienced a break up

whether you have lost a job.
Move on and let go.
Life can be joyful and rewarding again.

When we come into the present,
we begin to feel the life around us again,

our loss, our secret hopes our love -
everything that moves us most deeply.

Zen says that if you drop knowledge -
and within knowledge everything is included;
your name, your identity, everything,
because this has been given to you by others -
if you drop all that has been given by others,
you will have a totally different quality to your being: innocence.
This will be a crucifixion of the persona, the personality,
and there will be a resurrection of your innocence.
You will become a child again, reborn.
- Osho

It's like deja-vu, all over again.
- Yogi Berra

Truth always rests with the minority,
and the minority is always stronger than the majority,
because the minority is generally formed by those
who really have an opinion,
while the strength of a majority is illusory,
formed by the gangs who have no opinion -
and who, therefore, in the next instant
(when it is evident that the minority is the stronger)
assume its opinion... while truth again reverts to a new minority.
- Soren Kierkegaard

When you are sorrowful, look again in your heart,
and you shall see that in truth
you are weeping for that which has been your delight.

You can't go home again because home has ceased to exist
except in the mothballs of memory.
- John Steinbeck (Travels With Charley)

I love the rain - it washes memories
off the sidewalk of life.
- the movie Play It Again, Sam

Mind is repetitive, mind always moves in circles.
Mind is a mechanism: you feed it with knowledge,
it repeats the same knowledge,
it goes on chewing the same knowledge again and again.
No-mind is clarity, purity, innocence.
No-mind is the real way to live,
the real way to know, the real way to be.
- Osho

There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere,
and many of us will have to pass
through the valley of the shadow of death
again and again before we reach
the mountaintop of our desires.
- Nelson Mandela

I will greet this day with love in my heart.
And how will I do this?
Henceforth will I look on all things with love and be born again.
I will love the sun for it warms my bones;
yet I will love the rain for it cleanses my spirit.
I will love the light for it shows me the way;
yet I will love the darkness for it shows me the stars.
I will welcome happiness as it enlarges my heart;
yet I will endure sadness for it opens my soul.
I will acknowledge rewards for they are my due;
yet I will welcome obstacles for they are my challenge.
- Og Mandino

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth,
so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind.
To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again.
To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over
the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.
- Henry David Thoreau

I simply can't build my hopes on a foundation
of confusion, misery and death...
I think... peace and tranquillity will return again.
- Anne Frank

Real love is never a selfish emotion.
If you want something from someone -
especially if that something is sex -
what you are feeling is not true love.
True love is about wanting happiness for the person you love -
and not about seeking happiness for yourself.
Fortunately, in most cases our own loving presence
is the greatest gift we can give to a person we love.
Nonetheless, the litmus test of love is knowing
we would choose never to see that person again
if we believed that distance would bring them greater happiness.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I breathed a song into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For who has sight so keen and strong,
That it can follow the flight of song -
The song from beginning to end,
I found again in the heart of a friend.
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The satirist shoots to kill while the humorist brings
his prey back alive and eventually releases him again for another chance.
- Peter De Vries

I'd marry again if I found a man who had fifteen million dollars,
would sign over half to me, and guarantee that he'd be dead within a year.
- Bette Davis

Forgiveness is the remission of sins.
For it is by this that what has been lost,
and was found, is saved from being lost again.
- Saint Augustine

Born again?!
No, I'm not.
Excuse me for getting it right the first time.
- Dennis Miller

I am sure that if you plant the trees back again,
it will do nothing but good.
- Michael Fish

Experience enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.
- Franklin P. Jones
