Famous quotes containing the word verse:

    Much verse fails of being poetry because it was not written exactly at the right crisis, though it may have been inconceivably near to it. It is only by a miracle that poetry is written at all. It is not recoverable thought, but a hue caught from a vaster receding thought.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    When I a verse shall make,
    Know I have prayed thee,
    For old religion’s sake,
    Saint Ben, to aid me.
    Robert Herrick (1591–1674)

    All which is not prose is verse; and all which is not verse is prose.
    Molière [Jean Baptiste Poquelin] (1622–1673)
