James Dickey

From Quotes
Our life's journey of self-discovery is not a straight-line rise from one level of consciousness to another. Instead, it is a series of steep climbs and flat plateaus, then further climbs. Even though we all approach the journey from different directions, certain of the journey's characteristics are common to all of us.
Stuart Wilde

James Dickey (2 February 192319 January 1997) was a popular American poet and novelist.


  • I don’t mean to sell the poet so long or at such great length, but I do this principally because the world doesn’t esteem the poet very much. They don’t understand where we are coming from. They don’t understand the use for us. They don’t understand if there is any use. We are the masters of the superior secret, not they. Not they. Remember that when you write.
  • I don't understand how a writer could ever get writer's block, so-called. My problem is having too much...and being unable to get it down.
