  • My worst mistake was the stupid suburban prejudice of anti-Semitism, all along.
    • Quoted in Composed on the tongue, "Encounters will Ezra Pound" by Allen Ginsberg
  • Nothing written for pay is worth printing. ONLY what has been written AGAINST the market.
  • The art of letters will come to an end before A.D. 2000. I shall survive as a curiosity.
  • Properly, we should read for power. Man reading should be man intensely alive. The book should be a ball of light in one's hand.
  • The apparitions of these faces in the crowd;
    Petals on a wet, black bough.
  • Poets who are not interested in music are, or become, bad poets.
  • Where is what I loved?

why is that absurd ginsberg lie of a quote on here?[edit]

That's like a big fat guy having a healthy guy say his worst mistake was not being a big fat guy.

In this anti-fascist culture everything revolves around such issues. Poets who were admitted Marxists are treated very differently.
