Famous quotes containing the word wander:

    I know of the sleepy country, where swans fly round
    Coupled with golden chains, and sing as they fly.
    A king and a queen are wandering there, and the sound
    Has made them so happy and hopeless, so deaf and so blind
    With wisdom, they wander till all the years have gone by....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Over hill, over dale,
    Thorough bush, thorough briar,
    Over park, over pale,
    Thorough flood, thorough fire;
    I do wander everywhere
    Swifter than the moon’s sphere.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    ‘O opportunity! thy guilt is great,
    ‘Tis thou that execut’st the traitor’s treason;
    Thou set’st the wolf where he the lamb may get;
    Whoever plots the sin, thou point’st the season;
    ‘Tis thou that spurn’st at right, at law, at reason;
    And in thy shady cell, where none may spy him,
    Sits Sin to seize the souls that wander by him.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
