Famous quotes containing the words morton and/or thomas:

    Dr. Livingstone, I presume?
    —Sir Henry Morton Stanley (1841–1904)

    A process in the weather of the world
    Turns ghost to ghost; each mothered child
    Sits in their double shade.
    A process blows the moon into the sun,
    Pulls down the shabby curtains of the skin;
    And the heart gives up its dead.
    —Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
