Famous quotes containing the words muse and/or hicks:

    The muse is blind as Cupid and skittish as Diana.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    Even in ordinary speech we call a person unreasonable whose outlook is narrow, who is conscious of one thing only at a time, and who is consequently the prey of his own caprice, whilst we describe a person as reasonable whose outlook is comprehensive, who is capable of looking at more than one side of a question and of grasping a number of details as parts of a whole.
    —G. Dawes Hicks (1862–1941)
