Famous quotes containing the word rossetti:

    She gave up beauty in her tender youth,
    Gave all her hope and joy and pleasant ways;
    She covered up her eyes lest they should gaze
    On vanity, and chose the bitter truth.
    —Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–1894)

    “Ferry me across the water,
    Do, boatman, do.”
    “If you’ve a penny in your purse
    I’ll ferry you.”
    —Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–1894)

    What of the heart without her? Nay, poor heart,
    Of thee what word remains ere speech be still?
    A wayfarer by barren ways and chill,
    Steep ways and weary, without her thou art,
    Where the long cloud, the long wood’s counterpart,
    Sheds doubled darkness up the labouring hill.
    —Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828–1882)
