Famous quotes containing the words north and/or surrey:

    There are no whole truths; all truths are half-truths. It is trying to treat them as whole truths that plays the devil.
    —Alfred North Whitehead (1861–1947)

    Thus I alone, where all my freedom grew,
    In prison pine with bondage and restraint;
    And with remembrance of the greater grief
    To banish the less, I find my chief relief.
    Henry Howard, Earl Of Surrey (1517?–1547)
