Famous quotes containing the word poets:

    Great works constructed there in nature’s spite
    For scholars and for poets after us,
    Thoughts long knitted into a single thought,
    A dance-like glory that those walls begot.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    For just as poets love their own works, and fathers their own children, in the same way those who have created a fortune value their money, not merely for its uses, like other persons, but because it is their own production. This makes them moreover disagreeable companions, because they will praise nothing but riches.
    Plato (c. 427–347 B.C.)

    Abyss-mongering makes professors and poets feel daring.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
