The following are related quotes:
- “The true poets who have been among the teachers of men are well worthy of a far more earnest study than is often yielded to them. Among the multitude of rhymers who struggle for distinction in the shackles of meter, the multitude are apt to forget that the most noble and manly of men have been her Poets. Dante, Shakespeare, Milton, Cowper, Goethe, were all men foremost in masculine vigor of intellect, in practical sagacity and power.”
