Famous quotes containing the words head and/or river:

    With his head over his shoulder turned,
    He seemed to find his way without his eyes,
    For out o’ doors he went without their help,
    And to the last bended their light on me.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    “I’ll love you dear, I’ll love you
    Till China and Africa meet,
    And the river jumps over the mountain
    And the salmon sing in the street.
    —W.H. (Wystan Hugh)
