Famous quotes containing the words meg and/or randall:

    O bid me mount and sail up there
    Amid the cloudy wrack,
    For Peg and Meg and Paris’ love
    That had so straight a back,
    Are gone away, and some that stay
    Have changed their silk for sack.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Shatter the icons of slavery and fear.
    the leer
    of the minstrel’s burnt-cork face
    with a proud, serene
    and classic bronze of Benin.
    —Dudley Randall (b. 1914)
