Famous quotes containing the words pearl, buck and/or award:

    Then must you speak
    Of one that loved not wisely but too well;
    Of one not easily jealous, but being wrought,
    Perplexed in the extreme; of one whose hand,
    Like the base Judean threw a pearl away
    Richer than all his tribe.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    ... every event has had its cause, and nothing, not the least wind that blows, is accident or causeless. To understand what happens now one must find the cause, which may be very long ago in its beginning, but is surely there, and therefore a knowledge of history as detailed as possible is essential if we are to comprehend the past and be prepared for the future.
    —Pearl S. Buck (1892–1973)

    The award of a pure gold medal for poetry would flatter the recipient unduly: no poem ever attains such carat purity.
    Robert Graves (1895–1985)
