Famous quotes containing the words castle, watch and/or hill:

    Let me be at the place of the castle.
    Let the castle be within me.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    She saw
    her five young children
    writhe and die;
    in that hour
    she began to watch you,
    she whose eyes are open forever.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    I remember the scenes of battle in which we stood together. I remember especially that broad and deep grave at the foot of the Resaca hill where we left those gallant comrades who fell in that desperate charge. I remember, through it all, the gallantry, devotion and steadfastness, the high-set patriotism you always exhibited.
    Benjamin Harrison (1833–1901)
