A Quote by Samuel Taylor Coleridge on dependence, difficulty, logic, poetry, poets, reason, and science

Poetry, even that of the loftiest, and seemingly, that of the wildest odes, [has] a logic of its own as severe as that of science; and more difficult, because more subtle, more complex, and dependent on more and more fugitive causes. In the truly great poets... there is a reason assignable, not only for every word, but for the position of every word.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772 - 1834)
