Favorite Family Poets Quotes

1. "By adherence to a special set of rules, the child of the shabby-genteel can sometimes leap across the time which has passed by his family and function in the real world without doing violence to the hopes his mother held out for him. But those who cannot live within this pattern are the freaks and poets, and they travel a different road to peace."
Author: Murray Kempton
2. "As to animals," said the Count unexpectedly, "whatever one says, I maintain that the rodent family has a certain charm about it.""The rodent family . . . ?" replied the Baron, not getting the drift at all."Rabbits, marmots, squirrels, and the like.""You have pets of that sort, sir?""No, sir, not at all. Too much of an odor. It would be all over the house.""Ah, I see. Very charming, but you wouldn't have them in the house, is that it?" "Well, sir, in the first place, they seem to have been ignored by the poets, d'you see. And what has no place in a poem has no place in my house. That's my family rule.""I see.""No, I don't keep them as pets. But they're such fuzzy, timid little creatures that I can't help thinking there's no more charming animal.""Yes, Count, I quite agree.""Actually, sir, every charming creature, no matter what sort, seems to have a strong odor.""Yes, indeed, sir. I believe one might say so."
Author: Yukio Mishima

Today's Quote

… a közönséges könyvek olyanok, mint a meteorok. Mindegyiknek van egy pillanata, egyetlen szempillantás, amikor rikoltva felröppen, mint a fonix, lángot vet minden oldala. Ezért az egy pillanatért, ezért az egyetlen szempillantásért szeretjük oket továbbra is, amikor már hamuvá váltak. S keseru rezignáltásggal vándorlunk néha késobb e kihult oldalakon át, fásult kerepeléssel szemelgetve holt formuláikat, akár egy rózsafüzért."
