“…if you are not allowed to touch the heart sometimes in spite of syntax, and are not to be loved until you all know the difference between trimeter and trameter, may all Poetry go to the deuce, and every schoolmaster perish miserably!”
William Makepeace Thackeray
(July 18, 1811 – December 24, 1863)
