Famous quotes containing the word bells:
“For mankind, speech with a capital S is especially meaningful and committing, more than the content communicated. The outcry of the newborn and the sound of the bells are fraught with mystery more than the babys woeful face or the venerable tower.”
—Paul Goodman (19111972)
“Pancakes and fritters,
Say the bells of St. Peters.
Two sticks and an apple,
Say the bells of Whitechapel.
Kettles and pans,
Say the bells of St. Anns.”
—Unknown. The Bells of London (l. 712)
“You owe me ten shillings,
Say the bells of St. Helens.
When will you pay me?
Say the bells of Old Bailey.
When I grow rich,
Say the bells of Shoreditch.
Pray when will that be?
Say the bells of Stepney.
I am sure I dont know,
Says the great bell of Bow.”
