Famous quotes containing the words islands, virgin and/or british:

    we are so many
    and many within themselves
    travel to far islands but no one
    asks for their story....
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    Where the Youth pined away with desire,
    And the pale Virgin shrouded in snow,
    Arise from their graves and aspire,
    Where my Sun-flower wishes to go.
    William Blake (1757–1827)

    Among the virtues and vices that make up the British character, we have one vice, at least, that Americans ought to view with sympathy. For they appear to be the only people who share it with us. I mean our worship of the antique. I do not refer to beauty or even historical association. I refer to age, to a quantity of years.
    William Golding (b. 1911)
