Famous quotes containing the word lit:

    “Have no lit candles in your room,”
    That love lady said,
    “That I at midnight by the clock
    May creep into your bed,
    For if I saw myself creep in
    I think I should drop dead.”
    O my dear, O my dear.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    We have lit upon the gentle, sensitive mind
    And lost the old nonchalance of the hand;
    We are but critics, or but half create,
    Timid, entangled, empty and abashed,
    Lacking the countenance of our friends.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    The boy stood on the burning deck,
    Whence all but he had fled;
    The flame that lit the battle’s wreck,
    Shone round him o’er the dead.

    Yet beautiful and bright he stood,
    As born to rule the storm;
    A creature of heroic blood,
    A proud though childlike form.
    Felicia Dorothea Hemans (1783–1835)
