Famous quotes containing the words tears and/or shedding:

    What if there’s nothing up there at the top?
    Where are the captains that govern mankind?
    What tears down a tree that has nothing within it?
    A blast of wind, O a marching wind,
    March wind, and any old tune,
    March march and how does it run.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Thus Winter falls,
    A heavy gloom oppressive o’er the world
    Through Nature shedding influence malign,
    And rouses up the seeds of dark disease.
    The soul of man dies in him, loathing life,
    And black with more than melancholy views.
    James Thomson (1700–1748)
