Famous quotes containing the word bells:

    Holinesse on the head,
    Light and perfections on the breast,
    Harmonious bells below, raising the dead
    To leade them unto life and rest.
    Thus are true Aarons drest.
    George Herbert (1593–1633)

    This is the gospel of labour, ring it, ye bells of the kirk!
    The Lord of Love came down from above, to live with the men who work.
    This is the rose that He planted, here in the thorn-curst soil:
    Heaven is blest with perfect rest, but the blessing of Earth is toil.
    Henry Van Dyke (1852–1933)

    The bells they sound on Bredon,
    And still the steeples hum.
    “Come all to church, good people,—”
    Oh, noisy bells, be dumb;
    I hear you, I will come.
    —A.E. (Alfred Edward)
