Complete Poetical Works

Famous quotes containing the words complete, poetical and/or works:

    Love is not enough. It must be the foundation, the cornerstone—but not the complete structure. It is much too pliable, too yielding.
    Bette Davis (1908–1989)

    The death ... of a beautiful woman, is unquestionably the most poetical topic in the world.
    Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849)

    We all agree now—by “we” I mean intelligent people under sixty—that a work of art is like a rose. A rose is not beautiful because it is like something else. Neither is a work of art. Roses and works of art are beautiful in themselves. Unluckily, the matter does not end there: a rose is the visible result of an infinitude of complicated goings on in the bosom of the earth and in the air above, and similarly a work of art is the product of strange activities in the human mind.
    Clive Bell (1881–1962)
