I stole this quote

from Mutating the Signature, a wonderful collaborative blog that belongs to two of my poet friends.

Inside my empty bottle I was constructing a lighthouse while all the others were making ships. — Charles Simic

just a great quote about writing poetry! love it!

It is a great quote, isn't it. Simic reminds us we don't have to do what everyone else is doing.
