  1. Cervantes:

    Poesy is a beauteous damsel, chaste, honourable, discreet, witty, retired, and who keeps herself within the limits of propriety. She is a friend of solitude; fountains entertain her, meadows console her, woods free her from ennui, flowers delight her; in short, she gives pleasure and instruction to all with whom she communicates.

  2. Fiona Cargill:

  3. Robert Riley:

    As somebody who's recently retired, I've spent an awful lot of time at home, so the opportunity to first of all get out and have some human contact was attractive, as well as finally feeling like I could do something, this virus has been rampaging all over the world and hitting close to home as well as far away, and the opportunity to step in and actually make a difference was very appealing.

  4. Doug Baldwin:

  5. Robertson Davies:

    If I had my way books would not be written in English, but in an exceedingly difficult secret language that only skilled professional readers and story-tellers could interpret. Then people like you would have to go to public halls and pay good prices to hear the professionals decode and read the books aloud for you. This plan would have the advantage of scaring off all amateur authors, retired politicians, country doctors and I-Married-a-Midget writers who would not have the patience to learn the secret language.
