Famous quotes containing the words shirley erena, shirley and/or murray:

    Because you live, O Christ,
    the spirit bird of hope is freed for flying,
    our cages of despair no longer keep us closed and life-denying.
    The stone has rolled away and death cannot imprison!
    O sing this Easter Day, for Jesus Christ has risen!
    Shirley Erena Murray (20th century)

    Victorious men of earth, no more
    Proclaim how wide your empires are;
    Though you bind in every shore
    And your triumphs reach as far
    As night or day,
    Yet you, proud monarchs, must obey
    And mingle with forgotten ashes, when
    Death calls ye to the crowd of common men.
    —James Shirley (1596–1666)

    Ye Highlands and ye Lawlands.
    Oh! where hae ye been?
    They hae slain the Earl of Murray,
    And hae laid him on the green.
    —Unknown. The Bonny Earl of Murray (l. 1–4)
