Famous quotes containing the words bliss and/or elizabeth:

    No other sun has lightened up my heaven,
    No other star has ever shone for me;
    All my life’s bliss from thy dear life was given,
    All my life’s bliss is in the grave with thee.
    Emily Brontë (1818–1848)

    Then hail! thou noble conquerer!
    That, when tyranny oppressed,
    Hewed for our fathers from the wild
    A land wherein to rest.
    —Mary Elizabeth Hewitt (b. 1818)
