Famous quotes containing the word asleep:
“... Or how should love be worth its pains were it not
That when he has fallen asleep within my arms,
Being wearied out, I love in man the child?
What can they know of love that do not know
She builds her nest upon a narrow ledge
Above a windy precipice?”
—William Butler Yeats (18651939)
“Flow gently, sweet Afton, among thy green braes,
Flow gently, sweet river, the theme of my lays;
My Marys asleep by thy murmuring stream,
Flow gently, sweet Afton, disturb not her dream.”
—Robert Burns (17591796)
