A Quote by Walt Whitman

From this hour I ordain myself loose of limits & imaginary lines,
Going where I list, my own master total & absolute,
Listening to others, considering well what they say,
Pausing, searching, receiving, contemplating,
Gently, but with undeniable will, divesting myself of the holds that would hold me.

A Quote by Walt Whitman on poets and death

All goes onward and outward, nothing collapses,
And to die is different from what any one supposed, and luckier.
