Quotes by Seamus Heaney
History says, ‘Don’t hope on this side of the grave.’Seamus Heaney
The completely solitary self: that’s where poetry comes from, and it gets isolated by crisis, and those crises are often very intimate also.Seamus Heaney
Memory has always been fundamental for me. In fact, remembering what I had forgotten is the way most of the poems get started.Seamus Heaney
The gift of writing is to be self-forgetful, to get a surge of inner life or inner supply or unexpected sense of empowerment, to be afloat, to be out of yourself.Seamus Heaney
I have always thought of poems as stepping stones in one’s own sense of oneself. Every now and again, you write a poem that gives you self-respect and steadies your going a little bit farther out in the stream. At the same time, you have to conjure the next stepping stone because the stream, we hope, keeps flowing.Seamus Heaney
