  1. I love quoting!! One of my friend’s favourite quote is this one, by Paul Celan:
    “A poem, as a manifestation of language and thus essentially dialogue, can be a message in a bottle, sent out in the – not always greatly hopeful – belief that somewhere and sometime it could wash up on land, on heartland perhaps.”
    I also enjoy poetry and am participating in NaPoWriMo this month! You can see mine here: http://thetigerssterne.blogspot.co.uk/p/30-poems-in-30-days.html
