Famous quotes containing the word sound:

    O love, my love! if I no more should see
    Thyself, nor on the earth the shadow of thee,
    Nor image of thine eyes in any spring,—
    How then should sound upon Life’s darkening slope
    The ground-whirl of the perished leaves of Hope,
    The wind of Death’s imperishable wing?
    Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828–1882)
