"And if one is investing, one should look for the best return one can find on one’s investment.  Don’t you agree?  It’s a fact that is backed by empirical evidence.  It’s basic economics. Therefore, seeking a career as a poet, to give an example, would be financial folly, for there is no profit in posy.  You can’t even give poetry away."  Mordread Crubb 

"'...but then he is a poet, which I take to be only one remove from a fool.'"  Edgar Allan Poe (from "The Purloined Letter," in Edgar Allan Poe:  Selected Prose and Poetry, Rinehart & Co., 1955, p. 100)
