Poetry is the lifeblood of the soul.

"Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought
and the thought has found words."
- Robert Frost

"No man was ever yet a great poet, without being at the same
time a profound philosopher. For poetry is the blossom and
the fragrancy of all human knowledge, human thoughts,
human passions, emotions, language."
- Samuel Taylor Coleridge

"Assist me some extemporal god of rhyme, for I am sure
I shall turn sonneteer. Devise, wit, write, pen; for I am
for whole volumes in folio."

- William Shakespeare

"Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape
from emotion; it is not the expression of personality, but
an escape from personality. But, of course, only those
who have personality and emotions know what it means
to want to escape from these things."

- T.S. Eliot
