Famous quotes containing the words amy lowell, lowell, poetry, travelling and/or scholarship:

    Moon!
    Moon!
    I am prone before you.
    Pity me,
    And drench me in loneliness.
    Amy Lowell (1874–1925)

    As life runs on, the road grows strange
    With faces new,—and near the end
    The milestones into headstones change,
    ‘Neath every one a friend.
    —James Russell Lowell (1819–1891)

    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)

    He who should inspire and lead his race must be defended from travelling with the souls of other men, from living, breathing, reading and writing in the daily, time-worn yoke of their opinions.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Men have a respect for scholarship and learning greatly out of proportion to the use they commonly serve.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
