A Quote by Robert Lee Frost on emotion, experience, feeling, friendship, and purpose

I don't like to see things on purpose. I like them to soak in. A friend . . . asked me to go to the top of the Empire State Building once, and I told him that he shouldn't treat New York as a sight-it's feeling, an emotional experience. And the same with every place else.

But he had gone his way, the grass all mown, And I must be, as he had been - alone, As all must be, I said within my heart, Whether they work together or apart.

A Quote by Robert Lee Frost on books, conversation, good, language, reading, and writing

I was under twenty when I deliberately put it to myself one night after good conversation that there are moments when we actually touch in talk what the best writing can only come near. The curse of our book language is not so much that it keeps forever to the same set phrases . . . but that it sounds forever with the same reading tones. We must go out into the vernacular for tones that haven't been brought to book.

A Quote by Robert Lee Frost on garden and nature

Nature does not complete things. She is chaotic. Man must finish, and he does so by making a garden and building a wall.
