Dahlia Ravikovitch was born 27 November 1936, and died 21 August 2005

Three Quotes

  1. If I could only get hold of the whole of you.
  2. Like deep-sea divers, most poets lead a high-risk life because they are compelled to listen with such scrupulous attention to the very essence of words.
  3. After they all leave, I remain alone with the poems, some poems of mine, some of others. I prefer poems that others have written. I remain quiet, and slowly the knot in my throat dissolves. I remain.

Ravikovitch was an Israeli poet, translator, and peace activist.
