Famous quotes containing the word poets:
“In this nadir of poetic repute, when the only verse that most people read from one years end to the next is what appears on greetings cards, it is well for us to stop and consider our poets.... Poets are the leaven in the lump of civilization.”
—Elizabeth Janeway (b. 1913)
“God, who gave to him the lyre,
Of all mortals the desire,
For all breathing mens behoof,
Straitly charged him, Sit aloof;
Annexed a warning, poets say,
To the bright premium,
Ever, when twain together play,
Shall the harp be dumb.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“I have made a very rude translation of the Seven against Thebes, and Pindar too I have looked at, and wish he was better worth translating. I believe even the best things are not equal to their fame. Perhaps it would be better to translate fame itself,or is not that what the poets themselves do? However, I have not done with Pindar yet.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
