Famous quotes containing the words douglas and/or sir:

    Annie Laurie
    Gie’d me her promise true;
    Gie’d me her promise true,
    Which ne’er forgot will be;
    And for bonnie Annie Laurie
    I’d lay me doune and dee.
    —William Douglas (1672?–1748)

    Dug from the tomb of taste-refining time,
    Each form is exquisite, each block sublime.
    Or good, or bad,—disfigur’d, or deprav’d,—
    All art, is at its resurrection sav’d;
    All crown’d with glory in the critic’s heav’n,
    Each merit magnified, each fault forgiven.
    Martin Archer, Sir Shee (1769–1850)
