Famous quotes containing the words night, bed and/or fell:

    Still let my tyrants know, I am not doomed to wear
    Year after year in gloom, and desolate despair;
    A messenger of Hope comes every night to me,
    And offers for short life, eternal liberty.
    Emily Brontë (1818–1848)

    even
    The bed of love, that in the imagination
    Had seemed to be the giver of all peace,
    Is no more than a wine-cup in the tasting,
    And as soon finished.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    I have almost forgot the taste of fears.
    The time has been, my senses would have cooled
    To hear a night-shriek, and my fell of hair
    Would at a dismal treatise rouse and stir
    As life were in’t. I have supped full with horrors;
    Direness, familiar to my slaughterous thoughts,
    Cannot once start me.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
