Famous quotes containing the word whittier:

    Then the wife of the skipper lost at sea
    Said, “God has touched him! why should we!”
    —John Greenleaf Whittier (1807–1892)

    Through this broad street, restless ever,
    Ebbs and flows a human tide,
    Wave on wave a living river;
    Wealth and fashion side by side;
    Toiler, idler, slave and master, in the same quick current glide.
    —John Greenleaf Whittier (1807–1892)

    Then she took up her burden of life again
    Saying only, “It might have been.”
    —John Greenleaf Whittier (1807–1892)
