Saturday Morning Cereal: Marianne Moore Quotes

"Ecstasy affords / the occasion and expediency determines the form."

"The 'ability to be drunk with a sudden realization of value in things others never notice' can metamorphose our detestable reasonableness and offset a whole planetary system of deadness."

"the artist biased by imagination is the poet."

"The power of the visible / is the invisible"

"A reverence for mystery is not a vague, invertebrate thing. The realm of the spirit is the only realm in which experience is able to corroborate the fact that the real can also be the actual."
