Famous quotes containing the words thomas and/or gray:

    There was a saviour
    Rarer than radium,
    Commoner than water, crueller than truth;
    Children kept from the sun
    Assembled at his tongue
    To hear the golden note turn in a groove....
    —Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    In vain to me the smiling Mornings shine,
    And redd’ning Phoebus lifts his golden Fire:
    The Birds in vain their amorous Descant join;
    Or cheerful Fields resume their green Attire:
    —Thomas Gray (1716–1771)
