Famous quotes containing the words poets and/or english:

    nor till the poets among us can be
    literalists of
    the imagination—above
    insolence and triviality and can present

    for inspection, ‘imaginary gardens with real toads in them’,

    So is the English Parliament provincial. Mere country bumpkins, they betray themselves, when any more important question arises for them to settle, the Irish question, for instance,—the English question why did I not say? Their natures are subdued to what they work in. Their “good breeding” respects only secondary objects.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
