Quote of the Day/Week-Sylvia Plath

Today, we conclude our quotes from famous poets from around the world, with the American poet Sylvia Plath (1932-1963) who committed suicide at age 30 in England. Plath was married to the famous English poet Ted Hughes (1930-1998), with whom she had two children.

Plath published two poetry collections "The Colossus and Other Poems" and "Ariel." She was the first poet to win the Pulitzer Prize for poetry posthumously. Plath also wrote the novel "The Bell Jar."

Actress Gwyneth Platrow, then 30 herself while the film was being shot, played in the poet in the biopic film "Sylvia" (2003).

Here is Plath's quote:

"How frail the human heart must be_ a mirrored pool of thought."
