An Amazing Book

There is a book that collects the poetry, and quotes of some of the most profound of thinkers. This book has encouraged me and enlightened me whenever I have read out of it. It is one book whose words I truly savor. It is called Leaves of Gold. In it is a poem that gives details of the life of a king whose heart was for his people. It tells of the beginning of his life, his message and the way his life ended. The poem is called: This Too Shall Pass Away. As he lay dying at the end, the author ends with what he began the poem with: This too shall pass away.
I would like to learn what your favorite poem, poet or book of poetry or prose is and why. I also want to hear stories of how EP poets and writers have made an impact.
