Famous quotes containing the word clough:

    Say not the struggle nought availeth,
    The labour and the wounds are vain,
    The enemy faints not, nor faileth,
    And as things have been they remain.
    —Arthur Hugh Clough (1819–1861)

    Thou shalt have one God only; who
    Would be at the expense of two?
    No graven images may be
    Worshipped, except the currency:
    —Arthur Hugh Clough (1819–1861)

    As I sat at the cafe, I said to myself,
    They may talk as they please about what they call pelf,
    They may sneer as they like about eating and drinking,
    But help it I cannot, I cannot help thinking
    How pleasant it is to have money, heigh ho!
    How pleasant it is to have money.
    —Arthur Hugh Clough (1819–1861)
