„It's a strange courage
you give me ancient star:Shine alone in the sunrise
toward which you lend no part!“

— William Carlos Williams
Context: It's a strange courage you give me ancient star:Shine alone in the sunrise toward which you lend no part! "El Hombre"

„Why do I write today? The beauty of
the terrible faces
of our nonentities
stirs me to it“

— William Carlos Williams
Context: Why do I write today? The beauty of the terrible faces of our nonentities stirs me to it: colored women day workers— old and experienced— returning home at dusk, in cast off clothing faces like old Florentine oak. "Apology"

„I lie here thinking of you:— the stain of love
is upon the world!“

— William Carlos Williams
Context: I lie here thinking of you:— the stain of love is upon the world! "Love Song"

„If so I look for a development along these lines and will be satisfied with nothing else.“

— William Carlos Williams
Context: There is no poetry of distinction without formal invention, for it is in the intimate form that works of art achieve their exact meaning, in which they most resemble the machine, to give language its highest dignity, its illumination in the environment to which it is native. Such war, as the arts live and breathe by, is continuous. It may be that my interests as expressed here are pre-art. If so I look for a development along these lines and will be satisfied with nothing else. Introduction

„The War is the first and only thing in the world today.“

— William Carlos Williams
Context: The War is the first and only thing in the world today. The arts generally are not, nor is this writing a diversion from that for relief, a turning away. It is the war or part of it, merely a different sector of the field. [http://www.poetryfoundation.org/learning/essay/237888 Introduction]

„The arts have a complex relation to society. The poet isn’t a fixed phenomenon, no more is his work.“

— William Carlos Williams
Context: A man isn’t a block that remains stationary though the psychologists treat him so — and most take an insane pride in believing it. Consistency! He varies; Hamlet today, Caesar tomorrow; here, there, somewhere — if he is to retain his sanity, and why not? The arts have a complex relation to society. The poet isn’t a fixed phenomenon, no more is his work. Introduction

„I think
of the poetry
of René Char
and all he must have seen
and suffered
that has brought him
to speak only of
sedgy rivers,
of daffodils and tulips
whose roots they water“

— William Carlos Williams
Context: I think of the poetry of René Char and all he must have seen and suffered that has brought him to speak only of sedgy rivers, of daffodils and tulips whose roots they water, even to the free-flowing river that laves the rootlets of those sweet-scented flowers that people the milky way "To a Dog Injured in the Street"
