Famous quotes containing the word pound:

    I ask a wreathwhich will not crush my head.
    And there is no hurry about it;
    I shall have, doubtless, a boom after my funeral,
    Seeing that long standing increases all things
    regardless of quality.
    —Ezra Pound (1885–1972)

    Modern civilization has bred a race with brains like those of rabbits and we who are the heirs of the witch-doctor and the voodoo. We artists who have been so long the despised are about to take over control.
    —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)
