Famous quotes containing the word grim:

    Here lies the body of William Jones
    Who all his life collected bones,
    Till Death, that grim and boney spectre,
    That universal bone collector,
    Boned old Jones, so neat and tidy,
    And here he lies, all bona fide.
    —Anonymous. “Epitaph on William Jones,” from Eleanor Broughton’s Varia (1925)

    O Captain! my Captain! our fearful trip is done,
    The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won,
    The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
    While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring;
    But O heart! heart! heart!
    O the bleeding drops of red,
    Where on the deck my Captain lies,
    Fallen cold and dead.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    Is a man too strong and fierce for society, and by temper and position a bad citizen,—a morose ruffian, with a dash of the pirate in him;Mnature sends him a troop of pretty sons and daughters, who are getting along in the dame’s classes at the village school, and love and fear for them smooths his grim scowl to courtesy. Thus she contrives to intenerate the granite and the feldspar, takes the boar out and puts the lamb in, and keeps her balance true.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
