Famous quotes containing the words book and/or herd:
“When a man wants to write a book full of unassailable facts, he always goes to the British Museum.”
—Anthony Trollope (18151882)
“The curfew tolls the knell of parting day,
The lowing herd wind slowly oer the lea,
The ploughman homeward plods his weary way,
And leaves the world to darkness and to me.
Now fades the glimmering landscape on the sight,
And all the air a solemn stillness holds,
Save where the beetle wheels his droning flight,
And drowsy tinklings lull the distant folds.”
—Thomas Gray (17161771)
