“You have a great gift for rhyme.” ~Inigo Montoya, The Princess Bride

kitten asleep on booksI love great quotes, and many of the snippets I choose are taken from poetry or the classics.  Winnie the Pooh says: “Poetry and Hums aren’t things which you get, they’re things which get you. And all you can do is go where they can find you.”

An infinitely wise thought to ponder.

Not all poetry rhymes, of course. However, Inigo Montoya and Fezzik love a good rhyme.

One of my favorites from The Princess Bride:

Inigo Montoya: That Vizzini, he can *fuss*.

Fezzik: Fuss, fuss… I think he like to scream at *us*.

fezzik-and-inigoInigo Montoya: Probably he means no *harm*.

Fezzik: He’s really very short on *charm*. 

Inigo Montoya: You have a great gift for rhyme. 

Fezzik: Yes, yes, some of the time. 

Vizzini: Enough of that. 

Inigo Montoya: Fezzik, are there rocks ahead? 

Fezzik: If there are, we all be dead. 

Vizzini: No more rhymes now, I mean it. 

Fezzik: Anybody want a peanut? 


Old-BooksThere are many different kinds of poetry. Author Ken Myers has come up with fifteen on his blog: Big List of Different Types of Poems

Who knew?  I will leave you with a favorite quote from Lewis Carroll

‘The time has come,’ the walrus said, ‘to talk of many things; of shoes and ships-and sealing wax-of cabbages and kings.’

  1. Your post made me smile and want to watch The Princess Bride again.


  2. I haven’t seen that movie in ages. I didn’t realize there were that many types of poems. As always another enjoyable post. Big smiles.
