Wrote

Famous quotes containing the word wrote:

    GOETHE, raised o’er joy and strife,
    Drew the firm lines of Fate and Life,
    And brought Olympian wisdom down
    To court and mar, to gown and town,
    Stooping, his finger wrote in clay
    The open secret of to-day.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    When I wrote of the women in their dances and wildness, it was a mask,
    on their mountain, gold-hunting, singing, in orgy,
    it was a mask; when I wrote of the god,
    fragmented, exiled from himself, his life, the love gone down with song,
    it was myself, split open, unable to speak, in exile from myself.
    ...
    No more masks! No more mythologies!
    Muriel Rukeyser (1913–1980)

    Ah, yes, I wrote the “Purple Cow”—
    I’m sorry, now, I wrote it!
    But I can tell you, anyhow,
    I’ll kill you if you quote it.
    Gelett Burgess (1866–1951)
