Famous Philosopher Poets

If you Google Philosopher Poets,  many famous names come up.  Some are surprising like Rumi.
Others we would expect like Ralph Waldo Emerson.  

Here's a quote from Shams Tabrizi, Rumi's teacher:

The chemistry of mind is different from the chemistry of love. The mind is careful, suspicious, he advances little by little. He advises “Be careful, protect yourself” Whereas love says “Let yourself, go!” The mind is strong, never falls down, while love hurts itself, falls into ruins. But isn’t it in ruins that we mostly find the treasures? A broken heart hides so many treasures.
