"The I of every poet
is a new dictionary,
a new language.

What one style says
another never can.

There are styles
with a rich vocabulary
able to quarry out innumerable,
mysterious secrets;

and there are styles
of only three of four works,

but thanks to these,
a corner of beauty
that otherwise
would have remained hidden
comes to our attention.

For this reason every true poet,
bountiful or sparing,
is irreplacable.

Jose Ortega Y Gasset
