Famous quotes containing the word pound:

    A civilized man is one who will give a serious answer to a serious question. Civilization itself is a certain sane balance of values.
    —Ezra Pound (1885–1972)

    Haie! Haie!
    These were the swift to harry;
    These the keen-scented;
    These were the souls of blood.
    Slow on the leash,
    pallid the leash-men!
    —Ezra Pound (1885–1972)

    Oh we drunk his “Hale” in the good red wine
    When we last made company,
    No capon priest was the Goodly Fere
    But a man o’ men was he.
    —Ezra Pound (1885–1972)
