Famous quotes containing the words children, lady, hospital and/or sick:

    “... War is for everyone, for children too.
    I wasn’t going to tell you and I mustn’t.
    The best way is to come uphill with me
    And have our fire and laugh and be afraid.”
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    But when his horse had put its hoof
    Into a rabbit hole
    He dropped upon his head and died.
    His lady saw it all
    And dropped and died thereon, for she
    Loved him with her soul.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    The sun his hand uncloses like a statue,
    Irrevocably: thereby such light is freed
    That all the dingy hospital of snow
    Dies back to ditches.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    It’s a tragic irony. The sick stayed well and the healthy became blind.
    Philip Yordan (b. 1913)
