Famous quotes containing the word close:

    I have led her home, my love, my only friend.
    There is none like her, none.
    And never yet so warmly ran my blood
    And sweetly, on and on
    Calming itself to the long-wished-for end,
    Full to the banks, close on the promised good.
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)

    To be an editor, as I was.
    Then to lie here close by the river over the place
    Where the sewage flows from the village,
    And the empty cans and garbage are dumped,
    And abortions are hidden.
    Edgar Lee Masters (1869–1950)
