Famous quotes containing the word poems:

    Bernstein: “Girls delightful in Cuba stop. Could send you prose poems about scenery but don’t feel right spending your money stop. There is no war in Cuba. Signed Wheeler.” Any answer?
    Charles Foster Kane: Yes—Dear Wheeler, You provide the prose poems, I’ll provide the war.
    Orson Welles (1915–1985)

    The genuine remains of Ossian, or those ancient poems which bear his name, though of less fame and extent, are, in many respects, of the same stamp with the Iliad itself. He asserts the dignity of the bard no less than Homer, and in his era, we hear of no other priest than he.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Some poems are for holidays only. They are polished and sweet, but it is the sweetness of sugar, and not such as toil gives to sour bread. The breath with which the poet utters his verse must be that by which he lives.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
