"Line breaks are the reason I fell in love with poems. When I was a kid and I was first reading poetry, the poem seemed different from prose because it had line breaks—that’s how I knew. The line break was amazing, because so many meanings could be made in that moment. A line break, I really believe, is a moment of doubt—that in the process of writing, you don’t break your line until you know that you have heightened doubt to its utmost. This is part of why what we’re doing is an amazing craft."
"Even in the most peaceful surroundings the angry heart finds a quarrel. Even in the most quarrelsome surroundings the grateful heart finds peace."
