Here are the top most famous quotes by Laura Riding.

  • Because most people are not sufficiently employed in themselves, they run about loose, hungering for employment, and satisfy themselves in various supererogatory occupations. The easiest of these occupations, which have all to do with making things already made, is the making of people: it is called the art of friendship.
  • To a poet the mere making of a poem can seem to solve the problem of truth, but only a problem of art is solved in poetry.
  • The end of poetry is not to create a physical condition which shall give pleasure to the mind... The end of poetry is not an after-effect, not a pleasurable memory of itself, but an immediate, constant and even unpleasant insistence upon itself.
  • Poetry brings all possible experience to the same degree: a degree in the consciousness beyond which the consciousness itself cannot go.
  • I feel an intense intimacy with those who have this loathing interest in me. Further than this, I know what they mean, I sympathize with them, I understand them. There should be a name (as poetic as love) for this relationship between loather and loathed it is of the closest and more full of passion than incest.
