Famous quotes containing the word verse:

    But there’s another knowledge that my heart destroys
    As the fox in the old fable destroyed the Spartan boy’s
    Because it proves that things both can and cannot be;
    That the swordsmen and the ladies can still keep company;
    Can pay the poet for a verse and hear the fiddle sound,
    That I am still their servant though all are underground.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Thus have I made my own opinions clear;
    Yet neither praise expect, nor censure fear:
    And this unpolished, rugged verse I chose,
    As fittest for discourse and nearest prose;
    John Dryden (1631–1700)

    This be the verse you grave for me:
    Here he lies where he longed to be;
    Home is the sailor, home from the sea,
    And the hunter home from the hill.
    Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894)
