Famous quotes containing the word substitute:

    It is art that makes life, makes interest, makes importance ... and I know of no substitute whatever for the force and beauty of its process.
    Henry James (1843–1916)

    For poetry was all written before time was, and whenever we are so finely organized that we can penetrate into that region where the air is music, we hear those primal warblings, and attempt to write them down, but we lose ever and anon a word, a verse, and substitute something of our own, and thus miswrite the poem.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
