The world of religion isn't a logical world; that's why children like it. It's a world of worked-out fantasies, very similar to children's stories or fairy tales.
Yehuda Amichai
I think the end is endless. It's either a big black hole or a big white light or both together. But it's totally meaningless, because even if someone would explain it, I wouldn't understand it.
Yehuda Amichai
I was a very religious child - I went to synagogue at least once, sometimes twice, a day. And I remember my religiousness as good - I think religion is good for children, especially educated children, because it allows for imagination, a whole imaginative world apart from the practical world.
Yehuda Amichai
There are two languages: one as things seem to us and the other of knowledge.
Yehuda Amichai
My poems are political in the deeper sense of the word. Political means to live in your time, to be a man of your time.
Yehuda Amichai
Every intelligent person, whether he's an artist or not - a mathematician, a doctor, a scientist - possesses a poetic way of seeing and describing the world.
Yehuda Amichai
I've often said that all poetry is political. This is because real poems deal with a human response to reality and politics is part of reality, history in the making. Even if a poet writes about sitting in a glass house drinking tea, it reflects politics.
Yehuda Amichai
The reason a poet is a poet is to write poems, not to advertise himself as a poet.
