Respectfully Quoted: A Dictionary of Quotations. 1989.

AUTHOR: Author unknown
QUOTATION: Bullfight critics row on row
Crowd the vast arena full
But only one man’s there who knows
And he’s the man who fights the bull.
ATTRIBUTION: Author unknown. These lines were quoted in a letter to the editor by Representative F. Edward Hébert, chairman of the House Committee on Armed Services, who said, “President Kennedy was fond of quoting some lines from the Spanish poet García Lorca.”—The Washington Post, April 11, 1971, p.
