Famous quotes containing the words loch and/or treasure:
“Oh, many a day have I made good ale in the glen,
That came not of stream, or malt, like the brewing of men;
My bed was the ground, my roof the greenwood above,
And the wealth that I sought, one far kind glance from my love.”
—Unknown. The Outlaw of Loch Lene (l. 14)
“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
—Bible: New Testament, Matthew 6:21.
