Famous quotes containing the word rise:
“So in majestic cadence rise and fall
The mighty undulations of thy song,
O sightless bard, Englands Monides!
And ever and anon, high over all
Uplifted, a ninth wave superb and strong,
Floods all the soul with its melodious seas.”
—Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (18091882)
