Famous quotes containing the word pound:

    All things are a flowing,
    Sage Heracleitus says;
    But a tawdry cheapness
    Shall outlast our days.
    —Ezra Pound (1885–1972)

    Humanity is the rich effluvium, it is the waste and the manure and the soil, and from it grows the tree of the arts.
    —Ezra Pound (1885–1972)

    To have gathered from the air a live tradition
    or from a fine old eye the unconquered flame
    This is not vanity.
    Here error is all in the not done,
    all in the diffidence that faltered . . .
    —Ezra Pound (1885–1972)
