- It was as important to live poetically as to write poems.
- My earliest poems sing of the absolute necessity of allowing love to invade and pervade one’s life. That can make the miracle happen in reality. Try it.
- For me, prose walks, poetry dances.
- Everything has always been here one way or another. So it must know what it’s doing. And since I am part of this everything, a good part of me must be all right just the way it is, and the way it’s doing it.
- If you don’t fill your days with love, you are wasting your life.
- Trusting your individual uniqueness challenges you to lay yourself open.
Broughton was an American poet and poetic filmmaker. He was part of the San Francisco Renaissance, a precursor to the Beat poets.
