Famous quotes containing the words present and/or day:

    The land of shadows wilt thou trace
    And look nor know each other’s face
    The present mixed with reasons gone
    And past and present all as one
    Say maiden can thy life be led
    To join the living with the dead
    Then trace thy footsteps on with me
    We’re wed to one eternity
    John Clare (1793–1864)

    I sang as one
    Who on a tilting deck sings
    To keep men’s courage up, though the wake hangs
    That shall cut off their sun.
    —Cecil Day Lewis (1904–1972)
