Famous quotes containing the words the best, american and/or poetry:

    And the best and the worst of this is
    That neither is most to blame,
    If you have forgotten my kisses
    And I have forgotten your name.
    —A.C. (Algernon Charles)

    You hear a lot of dialogue on the death of the American family. Families aren’t dying. They’re merging into big conglomerates.
    Erma Bombeck (b. 1927)

    Whatever is felt upon the page without being specifically named there—that, one might say, is created. It is the inexplicable presence of the thing not named, of the overtone divined by the ear but not heard by it, the verbal mood, the emotional aura of the fact or the thing or the deed, that gives high quality to the novel or the drama, as well as to poetry itself.
    Willa Cather (1873–1947)
