Famous quotes containing the words dale and/or murphy:

    Now the bright morning star, day’s harbinger,
    Comes dancing from the east, and leads with her
    The flow’ry May, who from her green lap throws
    The yellow cowslip and the pale primrose.
    Hail, bounteous May, that dost inspire
    Mirth and youth and warm desire!
    Woods and groves are of thy dressing,
    Hill and dale doth boast thy blessing.
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    If I were in the unenviable position of having to study my work my points of departure would be the “Naught is more real ...” and the “Ubi nihil vales ...” both already in Murphy and neither very rational.
    Samuel Beckett (1906–1989)
