A Quote by Laurence Overmire on education, knowledge, generations, future, history, genealogy, poet, and genealogist

There is no nobler profession, nor no greater calling, than to be among those unheralded many who gave and give their lives to the preservation of human knowledge, passed with commitment and care from one generation to the next.

A Quote by Loren Eiseley on poet, moth, alien universe, unknown, play, invisibility, and passing through

While I was sitting one night with a poet friend watching a great opera performed in a tent under arc lights, the poet took my arm and pointed silently. Far up, blundering out of the night, a huge Cecropia moth swept past from light to light over the posturings of the actors. “He doesn’t know,” my friend whispered excitedly. “He’s passing through an alien universe brightly lit but invisible to him. He’s in another play; he doesn’t see us. He doesn’t know. Maybe it’s happening right now to us.

A Quote by Gaston Bachelard on observe, dream, reverie, poet, and peace

It is quite evident that a barrier must be cleared in order to escape the psychologists and enter into a realm which is not "auto-observant", where we ourselves no longer divide ourselves into observer and observed. Then the dreamer is completely dissolved in his reverie. His reverie is his silent life. It is that silent peace which the poet wants to convey to us.

A Quote by Gaston Bachelard on reverie, dream, poet, and poetry

In living off all the reflecting light furnished by poets, the I which dreams the reverie reveals itself not as poet but as poetizing I.

A Quote by Gaston Bachelard on psychologist, poet, inspiration, genius, esperience, phenomena, objective, and observation

Of course, a psychologist would find it more direct to study the inspired poet. He would make concrete studies of inspiration in individual geniuses. But for all that, would he experience the phenomena of inspiration? His human documentation gathered from inspired poets could hardly be related, except from the exterior, in an ideal of objective observations. Comparison of inspired poets would soon make us lose sight of inspiration.

A Quote by Dan Simmons on poet and reality

Poets are the mad midwives to reality. They see not what is, nor what can be, but what must become.
