Famous quotes containing the word hill:

    What rein can hold licentious wickedness
    When down the hill he holds his fierce career?
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The most interesting thing which I heard of, in this township of Hull, was an unfailing spring, whose locality was pointed out to me on the side of a distant hill, as I was panting along the shore, though I did not visit it. Perhaps, if I should go through Rome, it would be some spring on the Capitoline Hill I should remember the longest.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    And then the man whom Sorrow named his friend
    Cried out, Dim sea, hear my most piteous story!
    The sea swept on and cried her old cry still,
    Rolling along in dreams from hill to hill.
    He fled the persecution of her glory....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
