20 Best Quotes by Famous Poets: World Poetry Day

Hey friends, I hope you all are good and enjoying life. If not I have some funny, inspirational and witty quotes said wrote by the legends and famous people. Recently the World Poetry Day was celebrated on March 21. The day was declared by UNESCO in 1999 to celebrate the poetry, to pay tribute to the great poets and beautiful creation and most importantly to encourage people to read and write more. I have wanted to write this post on March 21 i.e. on the World Poetry Day itself. However, I couldn’t as I was very busy doing my freelance writing work (and reading The Great Gatsby). But the thought wouldn’t stop nagging me and I knew I wouldn’t feel better until I share my thoughts with you.

I want to clear one thing here that I’m not going to talk about the famous poets and their work as I’m not a keen lover of poetry form as much as I’m of prose and plays. But I do like funny, witty and inspirational quotes. The other day when I was reading about famous poets and their work I found some of their quotes and sayings on the internet. And I’m sharing the 20 Best Quotes by Famous Poets that I loved very much in this post. Enjoy reading and don’t forget to save and share your favourite quotes.

1.Robert Frost – In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.

A content writer, an author, and an explorer. I love to read, write and learn new things. In the past few years, I've learned that "You can control and direct your life up to a certain extent if you take the risks." I wish to travel, read tons of books, and write beautiful stories. I'm on a journey to find and explore myself, create happy memories, enjoy small things, and to live life to the fullest!
