You have your identity when you find out,
not what you can keep your mind on, but what you can't keep your mind off.
- A. R. Ammons

If we ask a vague question, such as,
'What is poetry?' we expect a vague answer,
such as, 'Poetry is the music of words,'
or 'Poetry is the linguistic correction of disorder.'
- A. R. Ammons

The poet exposes himself to the risk.
All that has been said about poetry,
all that he has learned about poetry,
is only a partial assurance.
- A. R. Ammons

Besides the actual reading in class of many poems,
I would suggest you do two things: first,
while teaching everything you can and keeping free of it,
teach that poetry is a mode of discourse that differs from logical exposition.
- A. R. Ammons

I must stress here the point that I appreciate clarity,
order, meaning, structure, rationality:
they are necessary to whatever provisional stability we have,
and they can be the agents of gradual and successful change.
- A. R. Ammons

Each poem in becoming generates the laws by which it is generated:
extensions of the laws to other poems never completely take.
- A. R. Ammons

Even if you walk exactly the same route each time -
as with a sonnet -
the events along the route cannot be imagined to be
the same from day to day,
as the poet's health, sight, his anticipations,
moods, fears, thoughts cannot be the same.
- A. R. Ammons

For though we often need to be restored to the small,
concrete, limited, and certain, we as often need to
be reminded of the large,
vague, unlimited, unknown.
- A. R. Ammons

Definition, rationality, and structure are ways of seeing,
but they become prisons when they blank out other ways of seeing.
- A. R. Ammons

Probably all the attention to poetry results in some value,
though the attention is more often directed to lesser than to greater values.
- A. R. Ammons

I am grateful for - though I can't keep up with -
the flood of articles,
theses, and textbooks that mean to share insight concerning the nature of poetry.
- A. R. Ammons

If a poem is each time new, then it is necessarily an act of discovery,
a chance taken, a chance that may lead to fulfillment or disaster.
- A. R. Ammons

I take the walk to be the externalization of an interior
seeking so that the analogy is first of all between
the external and the internal.
- A. R. Ammons

If the greatest god is the stillness all the motions add up to,
then we must ineluctably be included.
- A. R. Ammons

Is it not careless to become too local when there are
four hundred billion stars in our galaxy alone.
- A. R. Ammons

Once every five hundred years or so,
a summary statement about poetry comes along that we
can't imagine ourselves living without.
- A. R. Ammons

That's a wonderful change that's taken place,
and so most poetry today is published,
if not directly by the person, certainly by the enterprise of the poet himself,
working with his friends.
- A. R. Ammons

I can't tell you where a poem comes from,
what it is, or what it is for: nor can any other man.
The reason I can't tell you is that the purpose of
a poem is to go past telling,
to be recognised by burning.
- A. R. Ammons

A poem generated by its own laws may be unrealized
and bad in terms of so-called objective principles of taste,
judgement, deduction.
- A. R. Ammons
