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)

    I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me,
    And what can be the use of him is more than I can see.
    He is very, very like me from the heels up to the head;
    And I see him jump before me, when I jump into my bed.
    —Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894)
