Aphorisms by Juan Ramón Jiménez

I liked these ones:

The true poet reanimates in his work, in abbreviated form, the complete history of poetry.

The rose: how can it be naked and clothed, all at the same time?

In order to read many books, buy just a few.

I am humble among the serious, proud among the vain.

Here is a brief biography.  Here are more of his aphorisms.
