Hive Fleet

Famous quotes containing the words hive and/or fleet:

    the child unlucky in his little State,
    Some hearth where freedom is excluded,
    A hive whose honey is fear and worry,
    Feels calmer now and somehow assured of escape;
    —W.H. (Wystan Hugh)

    Believe me, if all those endearing young charms,
    Which I gaze on so fondly today,
    Were to change by tomorrow, and fleet in my arms,
    Like fairy-gifts fading away.
    Thomas Moore (1779–1852)
