Famous quotes containing the words bonnie and/or pointer:
“Ye banks and braes o bonnie Doon,
How can ye bloom sae fresh and fair?
How can ye chant, ye little birds,
And I sae weary fu o care?
Thoult break my heart, thou warbling bird,
That wantons thro the flowering thorn:
Thou minds me o departed joys,
Departed never to return.”
—Robert Burns (17591796)
“The hardiest skeptic who has seen a horse broken, a pointer trained, or has visited a menagerie or the exhibition of the Industrious Fleas, will not deny the validity of education. A boy, says Plato, is the most vicious of all beasts; and in the same spirit the old English poet Gascoigne says, A boy is better unborn than untaught.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
