Famous quotes containing the words seed and/or top:
“This is a pain I mostly hide,
but ties of blood, or seed endure,

the hunger for his outstretched hand,
a mans embrace to take me in,

“There is Lowell, whos striving Parnassus to climb
With a whole bale of isms tied together with rhyme,
He might get on alone, spite of brambles and boulders,
But he cant with that bundle he has on his shoulders,
The top of the hill he will neer come nigh reaching
Till he learns the distinction twixt singing and preaching;”
—James Russell Lowell (18191891)
