20 Best Quotes by Famous Poets

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.
