Beat Sligo Grammar

Famous quotes containing the words beat and/or grammar:

    the grave,
    so humble, so willing to be beat upon
    with its awful lettering and
    the body lying underneath
    without an umbrella.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Literary gentlemen, editors, and critics think that they know how to write, because they have studied grammar and rhetoric; but they are egregiously mistaken. The art of composition is as simple as the discharge of a bullet from a rifle, and its masterpieces imply an infinitely greater force behind them.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
