Quotes by Edwin Morgan

I like to give a voice to others, especially things neglected or despised.
Translated poetry filled the no-man's-land between my own work and other writers', and I found this fascinating to explore.
I have friends who are very pessimistic. They say you can't possibly be an optimist nowadays. But I think, taking the longer view, you can still be as optimistic as you want.
Poetry is partly sympathy, don't you think? If it's any good, it gets people to think about others' points of view.
I just discovered when I was, oh, 12 or 13, that I was very interested in language - and this showed itself as poetry. There was no looking back.
