Famous quotes containing the word muir:

    They do not live in the world,
    Are not in time and space.
    From birth to death hurled
    No word do they have, not one
    To plant a foot upon,
    Were never in any place.
    —Edwin Muir (1887–1959)

    Wit is a weapon. Jokes are a masculine way of inflicting superiority. But humour is the pursuit of a gentle grin, usually in solitude.
    —Frank Muir (b. 1920)

    But famished field and blackened tree
    Bear flowers in Eden never known.
    Blossoms of grief and charity
    Bloom in these darkened fields alone.
    —Edwin Muir (1887–1959)
