Famous quotes containing the words bartholomew griffin and/or griffin:

    See where my Love sits in the beds of spices,
    Beset all round with camphor, myrrh, and roses,
    And interlaced with curious devices
    Which her apart from all the world incloses!
    There doth she tune her lute for her delight,
    And with sweet music makes the ground to move,
    Whilst I, poor I, do sit in heavy plight,
    Wailing alone my unrespected love;
    Bartholomew Griffin (d. 1602)

    is the paradox of vision:
    Sharp perception softens
    our existence in the world.
    —Susan Griffin (b. 1943)
