Famous quotes containing the words notes and/or ransom:

    What neat repast shall feast us, light and choice,
    Of Attick tast, with Wine, whence we may rise
    To hear the Lute well toucht, or artfull voice
    Warble immortal Notes and Tuskan Ayre?
    He who of those delights can judge, and spare
    To interpose them oft, is not unwise.

    Great lovers lie in Hell, the stubborn ones
    Infatuate of the flesh upon the bones;
    Stuprate, they rend each other when they kiss,
    The pieces kiss again, no end to this.
    —John Crowe Ransom (1888–1974)
