Famous quotes containing the word lords:

    The lords of life, the lords of life,—
    I saw them pass
    In their own guise,
    Like and unlike,
    Portly and grim,—
    Use and surprise,
    Surface and dream,
    Succession swift, and spectral wrong,
    Temperament without a tongue,
    And the inventor of the game
    Omnipresent without name;—
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The twelfth day of Christmas,
    My true love sent to me
    Twelve lords a-leaping.
    —Unknown. The Twelve Days of Christmas (l. 89–91)

    O dark dark dark. They all go into the dark,
    The vacant interstellar spaces, the vacant into the vacant,
    The captains, merchant bankers, eminent men of letters,
    The generous patrons of art, the statesmen and the rulers,
    Distinguished civil servants, chairmen of many committees,
    Industrial lords and petty contractors, all go into the dark....
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
