Famous quotes containing the words untermeyer and/or louis:

    Laughter shall drown the raucous shout;
    And, though these shelt’ring walls are thin,
    May they be strong to keep hate out
    And hold love in.
    —Louis Untermeyer (1885–1977)

    The frost was on the village roofs as white as ocean foam;
    The good red fires were burning bright in every ‘longshore home;
    The windows sparkled clear, and the chimneys volleyed out;
    And I vow we sniffed the victuals as the vessel went about.
    —Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894)
