Every week we're going to have a poll about a certain quote and who said it. Could be a famous quote from history, a line from a movie or a song, the opening line to a novel, something very topical, etc... 

We'll create a poll with the quote and a question based on it, from the answer options you just have to pick the correct one. :thumbsup:

Voters who pick correctly go into the draw for an El Pres Sampler!! :party:   (Drawn Tuesday morning, Brisbane time. Please note: Polls don't show on Tapatalk, but you can participate via a web version of the site)

NO GOOGLING!! And it may not help you anyway - depending on how tricky we get with the question. We're using the honour system. It's just a bit of fun. If you know, you know. If you don't, have a stab in the dark or an educated guess (if you prefer that term ;)). 

You may elaborate about your choice in the topic thread below if you wish but no posting of anything that gives the answer away to those who haven't voted.

Now you know the drill, vote away!  

Good luck!! :cigar:

I have no idea. I am not a poetry fan, hate when I have to teach it. I can confidently say this is not even an educated guess.

You got it right if that makes you feel better ?

Another wild guess ?. I think if you get five weeks in a row wrong you should be allowed two guesses for the next week.

Well, my wild guess was with the majority. Since it seems everybody guessed that doesn’t really mean anything ?

whoooaaaa! at this stage, it has 35 votes (well, not a spoiler as others have said it went with the majority pick). a few people have said they guessed but only two, i think, have actually said that the guessed correctly. that leaves a lot of people to whom you might be doing a disservice. 

in fairness, the older members among us probably had no trouble at all with that one as it was hardly something that was not widely known.

I went with Ginsberg only because the name rang a tiny bell. I don't know if I am right or wrong...a bit of fun for me . Truth is I don't have the first damn clue with most of these. Yes many folk on here with a great deal of knowledge  . The simple fact that  someone acknowledges a guess. What does that tell me....they guessed right. To suggest anything more or less than that. Turn it up ?

for what it is worth, and this is not in any way a spoiler, i saw that Lawrence Ferlinghetti died yesterday. he used to publish ginsberg and others. made 101 so not a bad innings.

Ugh. I hated poetry in high school (not that it has gained any more appreciation the older I get). Only recognised 2 names in the list..... and I picked the wrong one. I blame the coin I flipped.
