“Who would have thought that in a mere 25 years, poetry would have gone from being respected well to being well-respected? Certainly not I.”
—Mr. Lucas Brice, to Terry Wogan, Wake Up To Wogan, 1998
“I frequently dance with fairies under the moonlight. Fairies are very good dancers.”
—Mr. Lucas Brice, to Aled Jones, Poetry Uncovered, 2008
“Good poetry is very much like alphabet soup. The words are all there… they just need a little stirring. Sometimes you have to blow on them when they are too hot.”
—Mr. Lucas Brice, to Ruth Jones, on Ruth Jones’ Christmas Cracker, 2010
