Three Quotes in Honor of Anne Sexton’s Birthday

Poet Anne Sexton was born on 9 November 1928.

  • “I am a collection of dismantled almosts.”
  • “Saints have no moderation, nor do poets, just exuberance.”
  • “Writers are such phonies: they sometimes have wise insights but they don’t live by them at all. That’s what writers are like…you think they know something, but usually they are just messes.”
