Famous quotes containing the word vaughan:

    A ward, and still in bonds, one day
    I stole abroad;
    It was high spring, and all the way
    Primrosed and hung with shade;
    Yet was it frost within,
    And surly winds
    Blasted my infant buds, and sin
    Like clouds eclipsed my mind.
    —Henry Vaughan (1622–1695)
