Famous quotes containing the words rock and/or blowing:

    The acorn’s not yet
    Fallen from the tree
    That’s to grow the wood,
    That’s to make the cradle,
    That’s to rock the bairn,
    That’s to grow a man,
    That’s to lay me.
    —Unknown. The Cauld Lad of Hilton or, The Wandering Spectre (l. 2–8)

    Sleep, ignorant of pain, sleep, ignorant of grief, may you come to us blowing softly, kindly, kindly come king.
    Sophocles (497–406/5 B.C.)
