Famous quotes containing the words song and/or contest:

    But see, the Virgin blest
    Hath laid her Babe to rest:
    Time is our tedious song should here have ending;
    Heaven’s youngest teemed star,
    Hath fixed her polished car,
    Her sleeping Lord with handmaid lamp attending;
    And all about the courtly stable,
    Bright-harnessed angels sit in order serviceable.
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    You may be always victorious if you will never enter into any contest where the issue does not wholly depend upon yourself.
    Epictetus (c. 55–135)
