Carl Van Vechten - William Faulkner.jpg  
Poets are almost always wrong about facts. That's because they are not really interested in facts: only in truth: which is why the truth they speak is so true that even those who hate poets by simple and natural instinct are exalted and terrified by it.
~ William Faulkner ~
