Air Brand

Famous quotes containing the words air and/or brand:

    The curfew tolls the knell of parting day,
    The lowing herd wind slowly o’er the lea,
    The ploughman homeward plods his weary way,
    And leaves the world to darkness and to me.
    Now fades the glimmering landscape on the sight,
    And all the air a solemn stillness holds,
    Save where the beetle wheels his droning flight,
    And drowsy tinklings lull the distant folds.
    Thomas Gray (1716–1771)

    Obligation may be stretched till it is no better than a brand of slavery stamped on us when we were too young to know its meaning.
    George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)
