      Entertaining and wise! My favorites were: "When I write in first person I tend to lie, when I write fiction I tend to tell the truth" and "Poetry is a reality we have not yet seen, but the poet has". :-)

      Some interesting quotes here, enjoyed reading them. Some of them reminded me of Proverbs in the Bible. Very wise.

      My dad wrote some awesome poetry. Unfortunately it's all in Latvian. Sure wish I knew how to translate poetry without losing anything in the translation.
