Famous quotes containing the words fellowship and/or burns:

    Blest be the tie that binds
    Our hearts in Christian love;
    The fellowship of kindred minds
    Is like to that above.
    John Fawcett (1739/40–1817)

    O wad some Pow’r the giftie gie us
    To see oursels as others see us!
    It wad frae monie a blunder free us
    And foolish notion:
    What airs in dress an’ gait wad lea’e us,
    And ev’n Devotion!
    —Robert Burns (1759–1796)
