Top 10 quotes by Robert Frost

One of the best poems by Robert Frost

‘Some Bedtime Stories’ celebrates the birthday of Robert Frost (26th March, 1874- 29th January, 1963) and presents some of his most poignant and amazing quotes.

Here are top 10 quotes of Robert Frost (selected by me personally from a list of many). They are not in any ranking order but randomly presented:

1.       "A poem begins in delight and ends in wisdom."

2.      "A liberal is a man too broadminded to take his own side in a quarrel."

3.      "In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on."

4.       "Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired."

5.      "The best way out is always through."

6.       "The reason why worry kills more people than work is that more people worry than work."

7.      “The brain is a wonderful organ. It starts working the moment you get up in the morning and does not stop until you get into the office.”

8.      “Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.”

9.       “A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.”

10.  “I am not a teacher, but an awakener.”

Bonus Quote: “Don't ever take a fence down until you know why it was put up.”
