Words of Note

I would like to be a photographer if the camera could work the way fingers work. I like to capture an instant. A picture is a one-second thing - it's a fragile moment in time. I try to do it with words.

Anne Sexton, 20th-century American poet

Quoted in 'The Poet's Craft' (1987), edited by William Packard.
