Beautiful Answer Quote

Okay, I happened to notice in my stats that I got several searches from people who were trying to find out where the quote “Always the beautiful answer who asks a more beautiful question” came from. So, here’s the more precise answer: it’s the last line of the introduction to E.E. Cummings collection “New Poems” published in 1938. Or if you get your hands on his collection Poems: 1923-1954, it’s the last sentence on page 332.

By the way, the introduction is in prose, but it’s just as interesting to read as his poetry.
