Quote of the Day
When the vastness of God meets the restriction of our own humanity, words can't hold it. The best we can do is find the moments that rhyme with this expansive heart of God.
All of us suffer some injuries from experiences that seem to have no rhyme or reason. We cannot understand or explain them. We may never know why some things happen in this life. The reason for some of our suffering is known only to the Lord.
James E. Faust
I love rhymes; I love to write a poem about New York and rhyme 'oysters' with 'The Cloisters.' And 'The lady from Knoxville who bought her brassieres by the boxful.' I just feel a sort of small triumph.
Rhyme patterns are nothing without meanings to the words. A lot of rappers can do those flows, but the raps aren't really about anything - which is cool sometimes, but to have the flow and the message is one of my favorite things.
I keep reminding people that an editorial in rhyme is not a song. A good song makes you laugh, it makes you cry, it makes you think.
'Hound Dog' took like twelve minutes. That's not a complicated piece of work. But the rhyme scheme was difficult. Also the metric structure of the music was not easy. 'Kansas City' was maybe eight minutes, if that. Writing the early blues was spontaneous. You can hear the energy in the work.
I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle and end.
With the super duper flow, I created that one word rhyme style.
You want to know how to rhyme, then learn how to add. It's mathematics.
Two of the hardest words in the language to rhyme are life and love. Of all words!
As soon as war is declared it will be impossible to hold the poets back. Rhyme is still the most effective drum.
Evil is often supposed to be without rhyme or reason.
I'm tired of love; I'm still more tired of rhyme; but money gives me pleasure all the time.
Constantly risking absurdity and death whenever he performs above the heads of his audience, the poet, like an acrobat, climbs on rhyme to a high wire of his own making.
Lyrics are very different. There is a clear line between that and a poem. Something that has been a source of great excitement and delight for me is this idea that I get to rhyme.
Being a student of hip-hop in general, you take technical aspects from places. You may take a rhyme pattern or flow from Big Daddy Kane or Kool G Rap.
My favorite rhymes are sort of half-rhymes where you might just get the vowel sound the same, but it's not really a true rhyme. That gives you far more flexibility to capture the feeling you're trying to express. But sometimes it's best not to have any rhyme.
Rhyme, that enslaved queen, that supreme charm of our poetry, that creator of our meter.
I hear a little firecracker go off when you come up with a good rhyme.
Oh, love will make a dog howl in rhyme.
A good emcee will rhyme a lot of different ways. Don't limit yourself.
My first record was about childhood. There were a lot of nursery rhyme and fairytale references; it was all about being naive.
I was promised on a time - to have reason for my rhyme; From that time unto this season, I received nor rhyme nor reason.
My feeling is that poetry will wither on the vine if you don't regularly come back to the simplest fundamentals of the poem: rhythm, rhyme, simple subjects - love, death, war.
All through my life, I was hated on. When I was in middle school, they used to write in my rhyme book, 'You suck' or 'This sucks.'
William Arthur Ward
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Love has no age, no limit; and no death.
