Famous quotes containing the words church and/or established:

    Midnight has come and the great Christ Church bell
    And many a lesser bell sound through the room;
    And it is All Souls’ Night.
    And two long glasses brimmed with muscatel
    Bubble upon the table. A ghost may come;
    For it is a ghost’s right....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Thus truth’s established and borne out,
    Though circumstanced with dark and doubt—
    Though by a world of doubt surrounded.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
