Quote of the day

"Money is a kind of poetry." - Wallace Stevens

Wallace Stevens was a poet and insurance salesman who has been on my mind a bit lately.

Here are some other quotes from him that resonated:

"Most modern reproducers of life, even including the camera, really repudiate it. We gulp down evil, choke at good."

"The philosopher proves that the philosopher exists. The poet merely enjoys existence."

"The poet is the priest of the invisible."

"A poet looks at the world as a man looks at a woman."

But "money is a kind of poetry." Interesting thing for the insurance salesman/poet to say. I wonder what he meant by that.

What do you think?
