Famous quotes containing the words cullen bryant, cullen and/or bryant:

    So live that when thy summons comes to join
    The innumerable caravan that moves
    To that mysterious realm, where each shall take
    His chamber in the silent halls of death,
    Thou go not, like the quarry-slave at night,
    Scourged to his dungeon, but, sustained and soothed
    By an unfaltering trust, approach thy grave
    Like one who wraps the drapery of his couch
    About him and lies down to pleasant dreams.
    —William Cullen Bryant (1794–1878)

    Dame Poverty gave me my name,
    And Pain godfathered me.

    Fair scenes shall greet thee where thou goest—fair,
    But different—
    —William Cullen Bryant (1794–1878)
