Famous quotes containing the word dorothea:

    What sought they thus afar?
    Bright jewels of the mine?
    The wealthy of seas, the spoils of war?—
    They sought a faith’s pure shrine!

    Ay, call it holy ground,
    The soil where first they trod;
    They have left unstained what there they found,—
    Freedom to worship God.
    —Felicia Dorothea Hemans (1783–1835)
