Famous quotes containing the words blake and/or masters:

    Prisons are built with stones of law, brothels with bricks of religion.
    —William Blake (1757–1827)

    The spiritual kinship between Lincoln and Whitman was founded upon their Americanism, their essential Westernism. Whitman had grown up without much formal education; Lincoln had scarcely any education. One had become the notable poet of the day; one the orator of the Gettsyburg Address. It was inevitable that Whitman as a poet should turn with a feeling of kinship to Lincoln, and even without any association or contact feel that Lincoln was his.
    —Edgar Lee Masters (1869–1950)
