Famous quotes containing the word drew:

    We read poetry because the poets, like ourselves, have been haunted by the inescapable tyranny of time and death; have suffered the pain of loss, and the more wearing, continuous pain of frustration and failure; and have had moods of unlooked-for release and peace. They have known and watched in themselves and others.
    —Elizabeth Drew (1887–1965)

    Desponding Phyllis was endu’d
    With ev’ry Talent of a Prude,
    She trembled when a Man drew near;
    Salute her, and she turn’d her Ear:
    If o’er against her you were plac’d
    She durst not look above your Waist;
    Jonathan Swift (1667–1745)

    The miller quickly drew the dam,
    An’ there he found a drown’d woman.

    You cou’dna see her yallow hair
    For gold and pearle that were so rare.
    Unknown. The Twa Sisters (l. 32–35)
