Quotations


“Is that a real haiku, or did you write it yourself?” —Michael Dylan Welch

Okay, here’s a surprise—I didn’t write any of these, except for the preceding quotation (which is half stolen from Robert Creeley—and which I also have printed up as a T-shirt). These links lead to some of my favourite quotations relating to haiku poetry and other kinds of writing. Most of these quotations come from my reading of the original sources, and others come from quotation books. See also On the Art of Writing Haiku.
