Famous quotes containing the word verse:

    There are certain things in which mediocrity is intolerable: poetry, music, painting, public eloquence. What torture it is to hear a frigid speech being pompously declaimed, or second-rate verse spoken with all a bad poet’s bombast!
    —Jean De La Bruy√®re (1645–1696)

    Show me a man who feels bitterly toward John Brown, and let me hear what noble verse he can repeat. He’ll be as dumb as if his lips were stone.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I write real verse in numbers, as they say.
    I’m talking not free verse but blank verse now.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
