What great men have said about great men

Example:

PETER ABELARD. French Scholastic Philosopher: 1079-1142.
The most eminent and the most orthodox Doctor of the eleventh century. 
— F. D. MAURICE, Medieval Philosophy,
Abelard was almost the first who awakened mankind in the ages of darkness to sympathy with intellectual excellence. . . . Abelard was the first of the recorded name, who taught the banks of the Seine to resound a tale of love; and it was of Eloise that he sang. 
— HALLAM, Student's Middle Ages.
In the twelfth century was there any mind which shone more brightly, was there any eloquence which flowed more mightily, than that of Peter Abelard? Yet Abelard sank beneath the meanest of his scholastic contemporaries in the degradation of his career as much as he towered above the highest of them in the grandeur of his genius.
 — F. W. FARRAR, Seekers after God.
JOSEPH ADDISON. English Essayist and Dramatist: 1672-1719^
Thus Addison, by lords carest, Was left in foreign lands distress.
— SWIFT, A Libel.
On Addison's sweet lays attention waits And silence guards the place while he repeats; His Muse alike on every subject charms, Whether he paints the God of Love or Arms.
—GAY, Epistle XIV. No whiter page than Addison remains.
— POPE, Satires, etc., of Horace imitated.
With graceful steps see Addison advance The sweetest child of Attic elegance.
— THOMAS WARTON, The Triumph of Isis.
If Addison, or Rowe, or Prior write, We study them with profit and delight.
— CONGREVE, Of Pleasing. Guilt's chief foe in Addison is dead.
— YOUNG, Satire I.
