Crickets - Best of The Fading Captain Series 1999���2007

Famous quotes containing the words captain, series, crickets and/or fading:

    The captain sat in a commodore’s hat
    And dined in a royal way
    On toasted pigs and pickles and figs
    And gummery bread each day.
    Charles Edward Carryl (1841–1920)

    Every man sees in his relatives, and especially in his cousins, a series of grotesque caricatures of himself.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)

    He that hung upon the Torturing Tree
    Heard all the crickets singing, and was glad.
    Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936)

    Opinion is not worth a rush;
    In this altar-piece the knight,
    Who grips his long spear so to push
    That dragon through the fading light,
    Loved the lady; and it’s plain
    The half-dead dragon was her thought....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
