Famous quotes containing the words departed and/or letters:
“Ye banks and braes o bonnie Doon,
How can ye bloom sae fresh and fair?
How can ye chant, ye little birds,
And I sae weary fu o care?
Thoult break my heart, thou warbling bird,
That wantons thro the flowering thorn:
Thou minds me o departed joys,
Departed never to return.”
—Robert Burns (17591796)
“The entire merit of a man can never be made known; nor the sum of his demerits, if he have them. We are only known by our names; as letters sealed up, we but read each others superscriptions.”
—Herman Melville (18191891)
