Four Quotes

  1. I got so I simply gagged every time I sat before my desk to write an ad.
  2. One must be drenched in words, literally soaked in them, to have the right ones form themselves into the proper pattern at the right moment.
  3. I have wanted to write you more than once, but it will take many letters to let you know what I mean (for myself, at least) when I say that I have seen the Word made Flesh.
  4. Scatter these well-meant idioms into the smoky spring that fills the suburbs, where they will be lost.

Crane was an American poet who found inspiration in the poetry of T. S. Eliot. He wrote The Bridge as an epic poem in the vein of The Waste Land
