Famous quotes containing the word speakers:

    What’s this, Aurora Leigh,
    You write so of the poets and not laugh?
    Those virtuous liars, dreamers after dark,
    Exaggerators of the sun and moon,
    And soothsayers in a tea-cup? I write so
    Of the only truth-tellers, now left to God,—
    The only speakers of essential truth,
    Opposed to relative, comparative,
    And temporal truths;...
    The only teachers who instruct mankind,
    From just a shadow on a charnel-wall.
    Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806–1861)
