Famous quotes containing the word called:

    The poor in bustling towns aren’t called upon, but the rich deep in the mountains have relatives visiting them from afar.

    An angel, robed in spotless white,
    Bent down and kissed the sleeping Night.
    Night woke to blush; the sprite was gone.
    Men saw the blush and called it Dawn.
