the hell you say!

Poetry should surprise by a fine excess and not by singularity –it should strike the reader as a wording of his own highest thoughts, and appear almost a remembrance.
 John Keats (1795-1821) British poet.

Poetry is a way of taking life by the throat.
 Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.

Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.
 Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.
 Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American poet.

Good poetry seems too simple and natural a thing that when we meet it we wonder that all men are not always poets. Poetry is nothing but healthy speech.
 Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) American naturalist, poet and philosopher

Poetry must have something in it that is barbaric, vast and wild.
 Denis Diderot (1713-1784) French philosopher.


let us just say that the above quotes were not chosen by random chance.  one could gleen as much about nibble by reading these as by reading our ‘basics’ page. 

here there is insight into our madness.
