“Потому что всех тех, кто не выдержал главную битву, кто остался в Париже, в больнице, в землянке, в стихах под Москвой, все равно соберут, как рассыпанную землянику, а потом унесут — на зеленых ладонях — домой.” Дмитрий Воденников, Черновик

”Стихи – это всегда единое поле. Твои стихи не берутся из ниоткуда. Они пришли из чужих стихов и чужих голосов. Ты – это калейдоскоп чужих текстов. Об этом надо помнить всегда. И быть благодарным. Без другого не было бы тебя.”
