Dylan Thomas, whoever he was…

Dylan Thomas Quotes:

On life, on writing, etc

“My education was the liberty I had to read indiscriminately and all the time, with my eyes hanging out.”

“Why do men think you can pick love up and re-light it like a candle? Women know when love is over.”
“I hold a beast, an angel and a madman in me.”

”When one burns one’s bridges, what a very nice fire it makes.”

”Somebody’s boring me. I think it’s me.”

“A good poem is a contribution to reality. The world is never the same once a good poem has been added to it. A good poem helps to change the shape of the universe, helps to extend everyone’s knowledge of himself and the world around him.”

 

Poetry:

~”Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”

 

~“And I rose
In rainy autumn
And walked abroad in a shower of all my days…”

 

~“Time passes. Listen. Time passes.
Come closer now.
Only you can hear the houses sleeping in the streets in the slow deep salt and silent black, bandaged night.”

 

~“Time held me green and dying
Though I sang in my chains like the sea.”

 

~“They shall have stars at elbow and foot;
Though they go mad they shall be sane,
Though they sink through the sea they shall rise again;
Though lovers be lost love shall not;
And death shall have no dominion.”

~“Especially when the October wind
With frosty fingers punishes my hair,
Caught by the crabbing sun I walk on fire
And cast a shadow crab upon the land,
By the sea’s side, hearing the noise of birds,
Hearing the raven cough in winter sticks,
My busy heart who shudders as she talks
Sheds the syllabic blood and drains her words.”

 

Dylan Marlais Thomas was a Welsh poet and writer whose works include the poems “Do not go gentle into that good night” and “And death shall have no dominion”; the “play for voices” Under Milk Wood; and stories and radio broadcasts such as A Child’s Christmas in Wales and Portrait of the Artist as a Young Dog.
