Famous quotes containing the word whittier:

    O Time and Change!—with hair as gray
    As was my sire’s that winter day,
    How strange it seems, with so much gone
    Of life and love, to still live on!
    —John Greenleaf Whittier (1807–1892)

    Sleep that wakes in laughing day,
    Health that mocks the doctor’s rules,
    Knowledge never learned of schools.
    —John Greenleaf Whittier (1807–1892)

    Small pity for him!—He sailed away
    From a leaking ship in Chaleur Bay,—
    —John Greenleaf Whittier (1807–1892)
