Famous quotes containing the words cover and/or versions:

    Every individual ought to know at least one poet from cover to cover: if not as a guide through the world, then as a yardstick for the language.
    Joseph Brodsky (b. 1940)

    The assumption must be that those who can see value only in tradition, or versions of it, deny man’s ability to adapt to changing circumstances.
    Stephen Bayley (b. 1951)
