Poets are great quote keepers. They express themselves with creative words to motivate and transform the soul. These poets can certainly inspire one’s spirit.
The great poet, Robert Frost said, “A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness.”
As Robert Frost describes; “A poet never takes notes; you never take notes in a love affair.”
What transpires is effective and inspiring. Inspiration found in the history of lives well-lived. These are some of my favorite inspiring quotes about life and love from famous poets.
“So long as we love, we serve; so long as we are loved by others, I would almost say that we are indispensable; and no man is useless while he has a friend,” Robert Louis Stevenson said.
“That man is successful who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much, who has gained the respect of the intelligent men and the love of children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who leaves the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who never lacked appreciation of earth’s beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best in others and gave the best he had,” Robert Louis Stevenson said.
This commonly used White Elk quote serves as a monumental opportunity to living a life filled with love.
“When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life so that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice.”
Unless you live your life well, you’ll never realize how good it can be. It is never too late to live the life you’ve always wanted.
There are so many poets whose work I admire. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “There are two classes of poets — the poets by education and practice, these we respect; and poets by nature, these we love.”
I’ve only sprinkled a topping to the depth of these popular poets. Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Walt Whitman, and Edgar Allen Poe have contributed greatly in penning their thoughts.
In conclusion, I’m reminded of Ralph Waldo Emerson’s words which are still applicable today.“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
