Famous quotes containing the word bury:

    Illustrious examples engross, prejudice, and intimidate. They engross our attention, and so prevent a due inspection of ourselves; they prejudice our judgment in favour of their abilities, and so lessen the sense of our own; and they intimidate us with the splendour of their renown, and thus under diffidence bury our strength.
    Edward Young (1683–1765)

    “Now bury your bird,” the wind it bawled,
    “And bury him down and down
    Who had to put his trust in one
    So light-eyed and so brown....”
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)

    ‘Dear Captain Smith,’ the ghost replied, ‘you’ve used me ungenteelly.
    The crowner’s quest goes hard with me because I’ve acted frailly,
    And Parson Biggs won’t bury me, though I am dead Miss Bailey.’
    George Colman (1762–1836)
