Famous quotes containing the words sons and/or grant:

    They haven’t got no noses
    The fallen sons of Eve;
    Even the smell of roses

    But more than mind discloses
    And more than men believe.
    Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936)

    Therefore I summon age
    To grant youth’s heritage,
    Life’s struggle having so far reached its term:
    Robert Browning (1812–1889)
