Anne Sexton Quotes

Death's in the good-bye.

Even without wars, life is dangerous.

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

In a dream you are never eighty.

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

Live or die, but don't poison everything.

Need is not quite belief.

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

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

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

The joy that isn't shared dies young.
