Written

Famous quotes containing the word written:

    There is no doubt that the loftiest written wisdom is either rhymed or in some way musically measured,—is, in form as well as substance, poetry; and a volume which should contain the condensed wisdom of mankind need not have one rhythmless line.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Now stamp the Lord’s Prayer on a grain of rice,
    A Bible-leaved of all the written woods
    Strip to this tree: a rocking alphabet,
    Genesis in the root, the scarecrow word,
    And one light’s language in the book of trees.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    A woman’s best love letters are always written to the man she is betraying.
    Lawrence Durrell (1912–1990)
