Famous quotes containing the word meredith:

    Darker grows the valley, more and more forgetting:
    So were it with me if forgetting could be willed.
    Tell the grassy hollow that holds the bubbling well-spring
    Tell it to forget the source that keeps it filled.
    —George Meredith (1828–1909)
