Famous quotes containing the word dyke:

    Oh, it’s home again, and home again, America for me!
    I want a ship that’s westward bound to plow the rolling sea,
    To the blessed Land of Room Enough beyond the ocean bars,
    Where the air is full of sunlight and the flag is full of stars.
    —Henry Van Dyke (1852–1933)

    This is the gospel of labour, ring it, ye bells of the kirk!
    The Lord of Love came down from above, to live with the men who work.
    This is the rose that He planted, here in the thorn-curst soil:
    Heaven is blest with perfect rest, but the blessing of Earth is toil.
    —Henry Van Dyke (1852–1933)
