Famous quotes containing the words letters and/or case:

    Do not write me studied letters but ramble as you please.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    The definition of good prose is proper words in their proper places; of good verse, the most proper words in their proper places. The propriety is in either case relative.

    Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772–1834)
