Famous quotes containing the words east and/or meridian:

    Ah! on Thanksgiving day, when from East and from West,
    From North and from South, come the pilgrim and guest,
    When the gray-haired New Englander sees round his board
    The old broken links of affection restored,
    When the care-wearied man seeks his mother once more,
    And the worn matron smiles where the girl smiled before.
    What moistens the lip and what brightens the eye?
    What calls back the past, like the rich Pumpkin pie?
    John Greenleaf Whittier (1807–1892)

    to these
    Hale dead and deathless do the women of the hill
    Love for ever meridian through the courters’ trees
    And the daughters of darkness flame like Fawkes fires still.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
