Famous quotes containing the word lee:

    by Spoon Rivergathering many a shell,
    And many a flower and medicinal weed—
    Shouting to the wooded hills, singing to the green valleys.
    At ninety-six I had lived enough, that is all,
    And passed to a sweet repose.
    —Edgar Lee Masters (1869–1950)
