Quotes by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

'Poetry has been to me 'its own exceeding great reward'; it has soothed my afflictions; it has multiplied my enjoyments; it has endeared solitude; and it has given me the habit of wishing to discover the good and the beautiful in all that meets and surrounds me.'

'Poetry is the identity of all other knowledge, the blossom and fragrance of all human knowledge, human thoughts, human passions, emotions, language.'

'The poet is the man made to solve the riddle of the universe' who 'brings the whole soul of man into activity'.
