Famous quotes containing the words beck and/or jackson:

    In front of that sinner of a husband,
    she rattled off
    only those words
    that her pack of vile-tongued girlfriends
    taught her
    as fast as she could,
    and after,
    began to behave
    at the Love-god’s beck and call.
    It’s indescribable,
    this natural, charming
    path of love,
    paved with the gems
    of inexperience.
    Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)

    The goldenrod is yellow,
    The corn is turning brown,
    The trees in apple orchards
    With fruit are bending down.
    —Helen Hunt Jackson (1830–1885)
