Famous quotes containing the word bid:

    O bid me mount and sail up there
    Amid the cloudy wrack,
    For Peg and Meg and Paris’ love
    That had so straight a back,
    Are gone away, and some that stay
    Have changed their silk for sack.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    It seems that I must bid the Muse to pack,
    Choose Plato and Plotinus for a friend
    Until imagination, ear and eye,
    Can be content with argument and deal
    In abstract things; or be derided by
    A sort of battered kettle at the heel.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Or bid the soul of Orpheus sing
    Such notes as, warbled to the string,
    Drew iron tears down Pluto’s cheek,
    And made Hell grant what love did seek;
    John Milton (1608–1674)
