Famous quotes containing the word express:

    I can express no kinder sign of love
    Than this kind kiss.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Journalist: a person without any ideas but with an ability to express them; a writer whose skill is improved by a deadline: the more time he has, the worse he writes.
    Karl Kraus (1874–1936)

    The definition of good prose is proper words in their proper places; of good verse, the most proper words in their proper places. The propriety is in either case relative. The words in prose ought to express the intended meaning, and no more; if they attract attention to themselves, it is, in general, a fault.
    Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772–1834)
