Famous quotes containing the word bells:
“The bells they sound on Bredon,
And still the steeples hum.
Come all to church, good people,
Oh, noisy bells, be dumb;
I hear you, I will come.”
—A.E. (Alfred Edward)
“Pancakes and fritters,
Say the bells of St. Peters.
Two sticks and an apple,
Say the bells of Whitechapel.
Kettles and pans,
Say the bells of St. Anns.”
—Unknown. The Bells of London (l. 712)
“But listen, up the road, something gulps, the church spire
Opens its eight bells out, skulls mouths which will not tire
To tell how there is no music or movement which secures
Escape from the weekday time. Which deadens and endures.”
—Louis MacNeice (19071963)
