Famous quotes containing the word tale:

    Like a tale of little meaning though the words are strong;
    Chanted from an ill-used race of men that cleave the soil,
    Sow the seed, and reap the harvest with enduring toil,
    Storing yearly little dues of wheat, and wine and oil;
    Till they perish and they suffer—some, ‘tis
    whispered—down in hell
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)

    —I tell the tale that I heard told.
    Mithridates, he died old.
    —A.E. (Alfred Edward)

    Never trust the artist. Trust the tale. The proper function of the critic is to save the tale from the artist who created it.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
