Famous quotes containing the words russell lowell, lowell, james and/or russell:

    Joy comes, grief goes, we know not how;
    Everything is happy now,
    Everything is upward striving;
    —James Russell Lowell (1819–1891)

    These, and such as these, must be our antiquities, for lack of human vestiges. The monuments of heroes and the temples of the gods which may once have stood on the banks of this river are now, at any rate, returned to dust and primitive soil. The murmur of unchronicled nations has died away along these shores, and once more Lowell and Manchester are on the trail of the Indian.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    O Jesse had a wife, a mourner all her life
    And the children they were brave,
    But the dirty little coward that shot Mr. Howard
    He laid Jesse James in his grave.
    —Administration in the State of Miss, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    The snow had begun in the gloaming,
    And busily all the night
    Had been heaping field and highway
    With a silence deep and white.
    —James Russell Lowell (1819–1891)
