Famous quotes containing the words sidney lanier, sidney and/or lanier:

    Into the woods my Master went,
    Clean forspent, forspent.
    Into the woods my Master came,
    Forspent with love and shame,
    But the olives they were not blind to Him;
    Sidney Lanier (1842–1881)

    those far-fet helps be such
    As do bewray a want of inward touch,
    and sure at length stolen goods do come to light.
    But if, both for your love and skill, your name
    You seek to nurse at fullest breasts of Fame,
    Stella behold, and then begin to indite.
    —Sir Philip Sidney (1554–1586)

    But oh, not the hills of Habersham,
    And oh, not the valleys of Hall
    Avail: I am fain for to water the plain.
    Downward, the voices of Duty call—
    Downward, to toil and be mixed with the main,
    The dry fields burn, and the mills are to turn,
    And a myriad flowers mortally yearn,
    And the lordly main from beyond the plain
    Calls o’er the hills of Habersham,
    Calls through the valleys of Hall.
    —Sidney Lanier (1842–1881)
