Famous quotes containing the words douglas and/or castle:

    Annie Laurie
    Gie’d me her promise true;
    Gie’d me her promise true,
    Which ne’er forgot will be;
    And for bonnie Annie Laurie
    I’d lay me doune and dee.
    —William Douglas (1672?–1748)

    The splendor falls on castle walls
    And snowy summits old in story;
    The long light shakes across the lakes,
    And the wild cataract leaps in glory.
    Blow, bugle, blow, set the wild echoes flying,
    Blow, bugle; answer, echoes, dying, dying, dying.
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)
