Famous quotes containing the word december:

    Work—work—work,
    In the dull December light,
    And work—work—work,
    When the weather is warm and bright—
    While underneath the eaves
    The brooding swallows cling
    As if to show me their sunny backs
    And twit me with the spring.
    Thomas Hood (1799–1845)

    For I have lost the race I never ran,
    A rathe December blights my lagging May;
    Hartley Coleridge (1796–1849)
