Famous quotes containing the words league and/or youth:
“He will deliver you from six troubles; in seven no harm shall touch you. In famine he will redeem you from death, and in war from the power of the sword. You shall be hidden from the scourge of the tongue, and shall not fear destruction when it comes. At destruction and famine you shall laugh, and shall not fear the wild animals of the earth. For you shall be in league with the stones of the field, and the wild animals shall be at peace with you.”
—Bible: Hebrew, Job 5:19-23.
“Could beauty be beaten out,
O youth the cities have sent
to strike at each others strength,
it is you who have kept her alight.”
—Hilda Doolittle (18861961)
