Famous quotes containing the word nadir:

    In this nadir of poetic repute, when the only verse that most people read from one year’s end to the next is what appears on greetings cards, it is well for us to stop and consider our poets.... Poets are the leaven in the lump of civilization.
    Elizabeth Janeway (b. 1913)
