Famous quotes containing the words quest, golden and/or fleece:

    Every writing career starts as a personal quest for sainthood, for self-betterment. Sooner or later, and as a rule quite soon, a man discovers that his pen accomplishes a lot more than his soul.
    Joseph Brodsky (b. 1940)

    They think how one life hums, revolves and toils,
    One cog in a golden singing hive:
    Stephen Spender (1909–1995)

    Mary had a little lamb,
    Its fleece was white as snow,
    And every where that Mary went
    The lamb was sure to go;
    He followed her to school one day—
    That was against the rule,
    It made the children laugh and play,
    To see a lamb at school.
    Sarah Josepha Buell Hale (1788–1879)
