Famous quotes containing the word captive:

    There a captive sat in chains
    Crooning ditties treasured well
    From his Afric’s torrid plains.
    Sole estate his sire bequeathed,—
    Hapless sire to hapless son,—
    Was the wailing song he breathed,
    And his chain when life was done.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
