Famous quotes containing the words alfred tennyson and/or tennyson:

    All the chosen coin of fancy
    flashing out from many a golden phrase;
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)

    The splendor falls on castle walls
    And snowy summits old in story;
    The long light shakes across the lakes,
    And the wild cataract leaps in glory.
    Blow, bugle, blow, set the wild echoes flying,
    Blow, bugle; answer, echoes, dying, dying, dying.
    —Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)
