Famous quotes containing the words epic and/or poetry:
“An epic of worry rather than of high tragedy.”
—E.M. (Edward Morgan)
“The good, supreme, divine poetry is above the rules and reason. Whoever discerns its beauty with a firm, sedate gaze does not see it, any more than he sees the splendor of a lightning flash. It does not persuade our judgement, it ravishes and overwhelms it.”
—Michel de Montaigne (15331592)
