Famous quotes containing the words tonight, curfew and/or ring:

    And if tonight my soul may find her peace
    in sleep, and sink in good oblivion,
    and in the morning wake like a new-opened flower
    then I have been dipped again in God, and new-created.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    The curfew tolls the knell of parting day,
    The lowing herd wind slowly o’er the lea,
    The ploughman homeward plods his weary way,
    And leaves the world to darkness and to me.
    Now fades the glimmering landscape on the sight,
    And all the air a solemn stillness holds,
    Save where the beetle wheels his droning flight,
    And drowsy tinklings lull the distant folds.
    Thomas Gray (1716–1771)

    It is engend’red in the eyes,
    With gazing fed; and fancy dies
    In the cradle where it lies.
    Let us all ring fancy’s knell.
    I’ll begin it—Ding, dong, bell.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
