Famous quotes containing the word vaughan:

    So stick up ivy and the bays,
    And then restore the heathen ways,
    Green will remind you of the Spring,
    Though this great day denies the thing,
    And mortifies the earth, and all,
    But your wild revels, and loose hall.
    —Henry Vaughan (1622–1695)
