Famous quotes containing the word lump:
“In this nadir of poetic repute, when the only verse that most people read from one years end to the next is what appears on greetings cards, it is well for us to stop and consider our poets.... Poets are the leaven in the lump of civilization.”
—Elizabeth Janeway (b. 1913)
“A sparrow enters the tree,
A snow lump thrice his own slight size
Descends on him and showers his head and eyes,
And overturns him,”
—Thomas Hardy (18401928)
“Why has mankind had such a craving to be imposed upon? Why this lust after imposing creeds, imposing deeds, imposing buildings, imposing language, imposing works of art? The thing becomes an imposition and a weariness at last. Give us things that are alive and flexible, which wont last too long and become an obstruction and a weariness. Even Michelangelo becomes at last a lump and a burden and a bore. It is so hard to see past him.”
—D.H. (David Herbert)
