God has a brown voice, as soft and full as beer.


Saints have no moderation, nor do poets, just exuberance.


The joy that isn't shared dies young.


Death's in the good-bye.


It doesn't matter who my father was; it matters who I remember he was.


God owns heaven but He craves the earth.


Need is not quite belief.


Even without wars, life is dangerous.


In a dream you are never eighty.


The beautiful feeling after writing a poem is on the whole better even than after sex, and that's saying a lot.


Live or die, but don't poison everything.


Put your ear down close to your soul and listen hard.


I am not immortal. Faustus and I are the also-ran.
