Famous quotes containing the word head:

    The head must bow, and the back will have to bend,
    Wherever the darkey may go;
    A few more days, and the trouble all will end,
    In the field where the sugar-canes grow.
    A few more days for to tote the weary load,—
    No matter, ‘t will never be light;
    A few more days till we totter on the road:—
    Then my old Kentucky home, good-night!
    Stephen Collins Foster (1826–1884)
