Drove

Famous quotes containing the word drove:

    We drove the Indians out of the land,
    But a dire revenge those Redmen planned,
    For they fastened a name to every nook,
    And every boy with a spelling book
    Will have to toil till his hair turns gray
    Before he can spell them the proper way.
    Eva March Tappan (1854–1930)

    His mind resembled the vast amphitheatre, the Colis├Žum at Rome. In the centre stood his judgement, which, like a mighty gladiator, combated those apprehensions that, like the wild beasts of the Arena, were all around the cells, ready to be let out upon him. After a conflict, he drove them back into their dens; but not killing them, they were still assailing him.
    James Boswell (1740–1795)

    giving a nod, up the chimney he rose.
    He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
    And away they all flew like the down of a thistle,
    But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,
    “Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night.”
    Clement Clarke Moore (1779–1863)
