A storm is gathering in the poetic world. [ Juv ]
To the poetic mind all things are poetical. [ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow ]
For wheresoever I turn my ravished eyes,
Gay gilded scenes and shining prospects rise,
Poetic fields encompass me around.
And still I seem to tread on classic ground. [ Addison ]
Humor has justly been regarded as the finest perfection of poetic genius. [ Carlyle ]
The true poetic soul needs but to be struck, and the sounds it yields will be music. [ Carlyle ]
The poetic element lying hidden in most women is the source of their magnetic attraction. [ Victor Hugo ]
Music is the metre of this poetic movement, and is an invisible dance, as dancing is a silent music. [ Richter ]
The test or measure of poetic genius is to read the poetry of affairs, to fuse the circumstance of today. [ Ralph Waldo Emerson ]
What the tender and poetic youth dreams today, and conjures up with inarticulate speech, is tomorrow the vociferated result of public opinion, and the day after is the character of nations. [ Emerson ]
O brave poets! keep back nothing, nor mix falsehood with the whole; look up Godward; speak the truth in worthy song from earnest soul; hold, in high poetic duty, truest truth the fairest beauty! [ Mrs. Browning ]
Good dressing includes a suggestion of poetry. One nowhere more quickly detects sentiment than in dress. A well-dressed woman in a room should fill it with poetic sense, like the perfume of flowers. [ Miss Oakey ]
Friendship is impossible between men of high social standing and men in the lower walks of life; very difficult between a young man and a young woman; between two beautiful women, it is but a poetic fiction.
Humour has justly been regarded as the finest perfection of poetic genius. He who wants it, be his other gifts what they may, has only half a mind; an eye for what is above him, not for what is about him or below him. [ Carlyle ]
