“If poetry dies, nothing lives !”
Vihang A. Naik

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”
Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets

“There's magic in the unknown; a brooding fertility in the unknowable that can work on the reader's imagination long after a book is finished.”
Claire Wingfield, 52 Dates for Writers - Ride a Tandem, Assume an Alias, and 50 Other Ways to Improve Your Novel Draft
