Famous quotes containing the word russell:

    There comes Poe, with his raven, like Barnaby Rudge,
    Three-fifths of him genius, and two-fifths sheer fudge.
    Who talks like a book of iambs and pentameters,
    In a way to make people of common sense damn metres,
    Who has written some things quite the best of their kind,
    But the heart somehow seems all squeezed out by the mind.
    —James Russell Lowell (1819–1891)

    Our children shall behold his fame,
    The kindly-earnest, brave, forseeing man,
    Sagacious, patient, dreading praise, not blame,
    New birth of our new soil, the first American.
    —James Russell Lowell (1819–1891)

    I thought of a mound in sweet Auburn
    Where a little headstone stood;
    How the flakes were folding it gently,
    As did robins the babes in the wood.

    Up spoke our own little Mabel,
    Saying, “Father, who makes it snow?”
    And I told of the good All-father
    Who cares for us here below.
    —James Russell Lowell (1819–1891)
