Famous quotes containing the word ringing:

    When we reached the lake, about half past eight in the evening, it was still steadily raining, and harder than before; and, in that fresh, cool atmosphere, the hylodes were peeping and the toads ringing about the lake universally, as in the spring with us. It was as if the season had revolved backward two or three months, or I had arrived at the abode of perpetual spring.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Let the great world spin for ever down the ringing grooves of change.
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)

    Much have I seen and known—cities of men
    And manners, climates, councils, governments,
    Myself not least, but honored of them all—
    And drunk delight of battle with my peers,
    Far on the ringing plains of windy Troy.
    I am a part of all that I have met;
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)
