Famous quotes containing the words division and/or mounted:

    Slow, slow, fresh fount, keep time with my salt tears;
    Yet slower yet, oh faintly gentle springs:
    List to the heavy part the music bears,
    “Woe weeps out her division when she sings.”
    Droop herbs and flowers;
    Fall grief in showers;
    “Our beauties are not ours”:
    Oh, I could still,
    Like melting snow upon some craggy hill,
    Drop, drop, drop, drop,
    Since nature’s pride is, now, a withered daffodil.
    Ben Jonson (1572–1637)

    Casey Jones, mounted to the cabin,
    Casey Jones, throttle in his hand,
    Casey Jones mounted to the cabin,
    Took his farewell journey to the Promised Land.
    Unknown. Casey Jones (l. 49–52)
