We have a collection of 4 Poetry quotes from Leonard Cohen

"Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash." (ID 35016)

"I never really liked poetry readings; I liked to read poetry by myself, but I liked singing, chanting my lyrics to this jazz group." (ID 35401)

"I always thought that poetry is the verdict that others give to a certain kind of writing. So to call yourself a poet is a kind of dangerous description. It's for others; it's for others to use." (ID 35402)

"I think the term poet is a very exalted term and should be applied to a man at the end of his work. When he looks back over the body of his work and he's written poetry then let the verdict be that he's a poet." (ID 35405)
