Famous quotes containing the word have:
“Let it not your wonder move,
Less your laughter, that I love.
Though I now write fifty years,
I have had, and have, my peers;
Poets, though divine, are men:
Some have loved as old again.
And it is not always face,
Clothes, or fortune gives the grace,
Or the feature, or the youth;
But the language, and the truth,
With the ardour and the passion,
Gives the lover weight and fashion.”
—Ben Jonson (15721637)
“Really, friend, I cant let you. You may need them.
Not till I shrink, when theyll be out of style.
But really II have so many collars.
I dont know who I rather would have have them.
Theyre only turning yellow where they are.
But youre the doctor, as the saying is.
Ill put the light out. Dont you wait for me....”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
“I call on those that call me son,
Grandson, or great-grandson,
On uncles, aunts, great-uncles or great-aunts
To judge what I have done.
Have I, that put it into words,
Spoilt what old loins have sent?”
—William Butler Yeats (18651939)
