Famous quotes containing the words fellowship and/or burns:

    There is a fellowship more quiet even than solitude, and which, rightly understood, is solitude made perfect.
    Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894)

    O pale, pale now, those rosy lips,
    I aft hae kissed sae fondly;
    And closed for ay, the sparkling glance
    That dwalt on me sae kindly;
    And moldering now in silent dust
    That heart that lo’ed me dearly!
    —Robert Burns (1759–1796)
