Famous quotes containing the word donne:

    Go, and catch a falling star,
    Get with child a mandrake root,
    Tell me, where all past years are,
    Or who cleft the devil’s foot,
    Teach me to her mermaids singing,
    Or to keep off envy’s stinging,
    And find
    What wind
    Serves to advance an honest mind.
    —John Donne (c. 1572–1631)

    Go; and if that word have not quite killed thee,
    Ease me with death by bidding me got too.
    Oh, if it have, let my word work on me,
    And a just office on a murderer do.
    Except it be too late to kill me so,
    Being double dead: going, and bidding go.
    —John Donne (1572–1631)

    A bracelet of bright hair about the bone,
    Will he not let us alone,
    And think that there a loving couple lies
    Who thought that this device might be some way
    To make their souls, at the last busy day,
    Meet at this grave, and make a little stay?
    —John Donne (1572–1631)
