Famous quotes containing the words deep and/or throat:

    Yet here at least an earnest sense
    Of human right and weal is shown;
    A hate of tyranny intense,
    And hearty in its vehemence,
    As if my brother’s pain and sorrow were my own.

    O Freedom! if to me belong
    Nor mighty Milton’s gift divine,
    Nor Marvell’s wit and graceful song.
    Still with a love as deep and strong
    As theirs, I lay, like them, my best gifts on thy shrine!
    John Greenleaf Whittier (1807–1892)

    His little throat labours with inspiration, every feather
    On throat and breast and wings vibrates with the effluence Divine.
    William Blake (1757–1827)
