Quotations by Bunner, H. C.


Shake was a dramatist of note:
He lived by writing things to quote.

H. C. Bunner (1855-1896) American novelist and poet [Henry Cuyler Bunner]
“Shake, Mulleary and Go-ethe”
    (Source)

Referring to Shakespeare, who is quite quotable (and, in the rest of the poem, referencing Molière and Goethe, the last of which he rhymes with "teeth"). More information on the poem at the Source link.

Sometimes paraphrased, "Shakespeare was a dramatist of note / Who lived by writing things to quote."
