Quotes by Ezra Pound

Ezra Pound, 1885-1972. American writer who exerted great influence on the development of modern literature through his poetic works, such as the unfinished Cantos (1925-1960), his critical works, including ABC of Reading (1934), his voluminous contributions to literary magazines, and his tutelage of writers such as T.S. Eliot, James Joyce, and Ernest Hemingway.

  • The curse of me & my nation is that we always think things can be bettered by immediate action of some sort, any sort rather than no sort.
  • The modern artist must live by craft and violence. His gods are violent gods . . . Those artists, so called, whose work does not show this strife, are uninteresting.
  • All great art is born of the metropolis.
  • It would be about as easy for an American to become a Chinaman or a Hindoo as for him to acquire an Englishness or a Frenchness or a European-ness that is more than half skin deep.
  • One measure of a civilization, either of an age or of a single individual, is what that age or person really wishes to do. A man's hope measures his civilization. The attainability of the hope measures, or may measure, the civilization of his nation and time.
  • The real meditation is . . . the meditation on one's identity. Ah, voilĂ  une chose!! You try it. You try finding out why you're you and not somebody else. And who in the blazes are you anyhow? Ah, voilĂ  une chose!
