Famous quotes containing the words fellowship and/or burns:

    And sometimes I remember days of old
    When fellowship seemed not so far to seek,
    And all the world and I seemed much less cold,
    And at the rainbow’s foot lay surely gold,
    And hope felt strong, and life itself not weak.
    Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–1894)

    My heart’s in the Highlands, my heart is not here;
    My heart’s in the Highlands a-chasing the deer;
    Chasing the wild deer, and following the roe:
    My heart’s in the Highlands, wherever I go.
    —Robert Burns (1759–1796)
